|Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf has announced that National Car Rental will be joining the tournament as an official sponsor of the National Car Rental "Emerald Club Pavilion." |
"National Car Rental is happy to support the premier event on the Champions Tour that brings family fun and excitement to Savannah," said Greg Stubblefield, President of National Car Rental. "We are proud to be a part of the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf tournament, which showcases some of the world's best players and greatest fans. As the official rental car agency of the PGA TOUR, we continue to help golfers get from airport concourses to golf courses quickly and in style. Now it's great to support the Champions Tour in a way that also acknowledges the importance of the men, women, and children who watch the action and root for the players."
As a part of the new sponsorship, the tournament will be giving a fresh makeover to the Legends Club Pavilion, which will now be known as the National Car Rental Emerald Club Pavilion. Emerald Club ticket holders and Champions Grille Badge holders will be given the elite privilege of enjoying a great view of the first tee, ninth green and putting green from the Emerald Club Pavilion, which is located on the back deck of the Clubhouse and features a sports bar atmosphere. The amenities of the Emerald Club Pavilion include non-reserved tables, televisions, scoring terminals and choice of food and beverage for purchase. Members of National Car Rental's Emerald Club holding a daily ticket will also be admitted into this exciting area by simply showing their membership card.
National's own Emerald Club is designed to make the car rental experience fast and more convenient. Members enjoy special privileges, including the ability to bypass
National Car Rental the counter at more than 50 major airports in the U.S. and Canada, the ability to choose any cay from the Emerald Club Aisle, and quicker returns.
"The Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf is already a great event for Savannah with tremendous corporate support," said Tim Iley, Executive Director, Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. "The addition of National Car Rental will allow us to continue to raise the level of excitement surrounding the tournament and offer an electrifying atmosphere that will help attract more spectators and fun-seekers."
Played as an individual stroke-play event over the past six years, the new two-man, better-ball format will bring back the excitement that began in 1978. The Legends Division, played Friday through Sunday, will remain an Official Money/Official Win competition.
