GREENSBORO, N.C. – After a three-year hiatus, Cadillac, the luxury brand of General Motors, returns to the Wyndham Championship as its official vehicle, it was announced today. The 73rd annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 13-19, 2012.
Cadillac will provide PGA TOUR player courtesy cars as well as vehicles for tournament operations and tournament officials during the upcoming Wyndham Championship PGA TOUR event. Cadillac last served as the tournament’s official vehicle in 2008. The premium car brand will also have vehicles on display at Sedgefield Country Club during the tournament as well as a hospitality venue at the 10th green. In addition, Cadillac is the tournament’s newest premier partner, the sponsorship level below that of title sponsor Wyndham Worldwide and presenting sponsor BB&T.
“We are elated to have Cadillac back as our official vehicle,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “There is no better automotive brand to have associated with a PGA TOUR event than Cadillac, and it’s great to have them back. We sincerely appreciate Don Flow, Bill Black and all of the other Piedmont Triad Cadillac dealers for all of the assistance they provided in making this sponsorship possible.”
Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. In recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic renaissance led by artful engineering and advanced technology. This year Cadillac adds two vehicles to its portfolio.
