Sponsor Looks To Further Leverage Woods
Following His Masters Victory
As Tiger Woods' stroll through history continues after his repeat at Augusta, his corporate partners are designing new programs to tout their association. Buick looks to build its Buick Scramble event by promoting Woods' role as an Honorary Chair to 100,000 amateur golfers and potential Buick customers. Meanwhile, Buick GM Roger Adams said that the company will drop the "It's all good" slogan for a "broader advertising campaign featuring Woods that can be used for all future vehicles".
