Acura is the official vehicle of the Tiger Woods Foundation with the brand having a significant presence at all three Tiger Woods Foundation supported golf tournaments, starting with the 2014 Quicken Loans National Tournament taking place June 23-29 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. As the exclusive automotive sponsor, Acura will be providing more than 180 vehicles for use at the tournament and will host product displays for guests at the event. Acura vehicles also will be featured at the Deutsche Bank Championship (Aug. 27-Sept.1) and the exclusive World Challenge.
"Our presence at these three tournaments further strengthens Acura's already deep ties to the game of golf," said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president and division manager of Acura. "We are ready to hit one down the center of the fairway with our support at the Congressional next weekend."
Acura has a long history with the game of golf including a 10-year relationship as the official vehicle of the Pinehurst Golf Club in North Carolina, site of the 2014 U.S. Open. Acura also serves as the title sponsor of the Acura College Alumni Team Championship, which brings collegiate teams from around the country together for the ultimate golf tournament of champions.
Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance-luxury vehicles through a network of 275 U.S. Acura dealers. The Acura lineup features five distinctive models including the RLX luxury flagship sedan, the TLX performance luxury sedan (arriving this summer), the ILX compact luxury sedan, the 5-passenger RDX luxury crossover SUV, and the 7-passenger MDX luxury sport utility vehicle.
About the Tiger Woods Foundation
Where you come from shouldn't mean failure. At the Tiger Woods Foundation, it doesn't. Our programs break the cycle of poverty through college-access opportunities for low-income students. At Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses across the country, scholars in grades 5-12 are immersed in an interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum. Here, they make the connection between school and career, while planning a road map to college. Tailored to the needs of the first-generation scholar, the Earl Woods Scholarship Program provides college scholarships coupled with an unyielding support system. But we don't stop there. Through dedicated mentors, professional development workshops and internships, our one-to-one philosophy ensures the success of our students in college and beyond. See how our scholars are smashing the cycle of poverty at tigerwoodsfoundation.org and @TWFoundation.
