Optum Health Ambassador, Health and wellness advocate, 2019 PGA TOUR Player of the Year


For all those on the front lines … thank you

Optum Health Ambassador Rory McIlroy is taking action in support of COVID-19 relief. “It's been difficult to witness what so many are enduring over the last several weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” McIlroy said. He joins 20-time PGA Tour winner Dustin Johnson in the TaylorMade Driving Relief golf match supported by UnitedHealth Group. The event will raise money and awareness for the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation, two organizations helping to make a difference in COVID-19 relief efforts. “I hope we can provide a respite for anyone tuning in across the globe while raising awareness of the heroism and showing support for those on the front lines," McIlroy added.

BEN MEENTS: We brought kids in that have benefited from the health screenings that St. Vincent's provides out in the communities and makes sure that are necessary in order for them to participate in high school sports.

RORY MCILROY: Have you guys ever juggled?

BEN MEENTS: Rory's focus and curiosity in health care really inspires us and he is excited to help associate the way that he approaches his game of golf in the same way that Optum approaches solving complex challenges in health care.

RORY: Juggling is one of the only activities where your mind can actually focus and relax at the same time it uses both side of your brain.

I was recommended to do it before I went out to play so I started to juggle and got pretty good at it and it's just something I do for a few minutes a day to get myself in a good frame of mind.

BEN MEENTS: At Optum we've been really excited to be a Proud Partner of THE PLAYERS and for the third year in a row support St. Vincent's HealthCare Foundation.

And what it allows us to do is really support our shared mission to help people with healthier lives and also live in healthier communities.


Thanks guys! Nice to meet you. Good luck!
