Saab to sponsor Wales Open

I'm not much of a golfer. I tried it a few times and had mixed luck. But I accept that it's a sport that is growing rapidly. More and more people play golf and millions actually enjoy wathcing golf on the TV.

So maybe Saab sponsoring the Wales Open golf tournament is a good idea?

Here's what the press release says about the sponsorship:
Saab Drives Wales Open Forward
The Celtic Manor Resort is proud to announce Saab as the new title sponsor for its flagship European Tour golf event – the Saab Wales Open.
The sponsorship deal with premium car manufacturer Saab launches an exciting new chapter in the history of the tournament which, since inception in 2000, has established itself as one of the leading events on The European Tour International Schedule.
Saab Great Britain Ltd Marketing Director, David Pugh, said: “We are very excited to sign up as the title sponsor for the Saab Wales Open at a wonderful venue like The Celtic Manor Resort. We have watched the tournament develop into one of the biggest and most established golf events in Europe and we are delighted to help take it to the next level as the Saab Wales Open. We feel that the innovative sponsorship approach in creating Saab Golf Week, encompassing the exciting launch of PowerPlay Golf’s professional series and the Saab Wales Open, is highly reflective of our brand.
Also looks like parts of the Saab Golf Week is set for worldwide TV coverage.

Good to see that Saab around the world is operating as normal!
