Illinois Resident Shares In Tiger Woods' Record 50th Win - Last Chance To Win Woods' Courtesy Vehicle - A Custom 2007 Buick Lucerne
DETROIT, MI - Richard Breen of Orland Park, Ill. will take home a piece of golf history, thanks to Buick and Tiger Woods' record 50th PGA Tour win captured Aug. 6 at the Buick Open at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc, Mich.
Breen was selected at random among the more than 153,000 people who registered that week at www.buick.com to win Woods' courtesy vehicle - a custom 2007 Buick Lucerne CXS valued at more than $35,000.
Each time Woods wins a PGA Tour event this season, someone will win a custom Buick Lucerne CXS piloted by the world's top-ranked player. The "Tiger Wins, You Could Win" Lucerne giveaway debuted at the Buick Invitational in La Jolla, Calif. this past January and concludes at the PGA Championship held this week, August 17-20 in Medinah, Ill. This is the last opportunity fans have to win Woods' courtesy car.
"I was really stunned when I found out I won. I didn't believe at first. I thought it was a practical joke. Lucerne is the best-looking Buick ever made," said Breen. "I really want to thank Tiger. I knew he could do his part, I wasn't sure I could do mine," he added.
To participate in the "Tiger Wins, You Could Win" giveaway, consumers must register at www.buick.com. Consumers must register each week Woods plays for a chance to win that tournament's Lucerne.
After Woods wins a tournament, Buick will select one name at random from those who registered at www.buick.com. Each winner is notified shortly thereafter and can expect to take delivery of the Lucerne within a few weeks of the tournament victory.
If Tiger doesn't finish first, Buick will send one person and a guest from those who registered from that tournament on an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles for the "Tiger Wins, You Could Win" grand finale. At the event, they will enjoy luxury accommodations, rounds of golf and an exclusive clinic put on by Woods. The event finishes with a closest-to-the-pin contest - in front of Woods - for a final Lucerne giveaway.
Woods has forfeited the keys to his Lucerne courtesy vehicle four times this season. The first winner, Ira Jacobs from Decatur, Ga., received his Lucerne after Woods' win at the Buick Invitational in January. When Woods won the Ford Championship in March, he assured victory for Dan Bowman of Appleton, Wis. Melissa Loomis of Gresham, Ore. took over Woods' Lucerne from his victory at the British Open held in late July.
"Lucerne is a great new car from Buick, and this is a fun way to let people know about it," said Woods. "I'm happy to give away as many Lucernes as I can - because that means I'm winning. This year, I have to be careful about leaving anything in the car after the tournament."
Buick's "Tiger Wins, You Could Win" campaign has generated more than 1.3 million visits to buick.com since it launched. More than 425,000 people have entered to win Woods' courtesy vehicle. Consumers have one more chance to win Woods' courtesy Lucerne as the campaign concludes at the end of this month.
"These are the actual Buick Lucernes that Tiger drives during the tournaments he competes in," said Buick Golf Manager Larry Peck. "This is the last chance for people to share in Tiger's success."
Woods' custom Lucerne CXS features a black exterior and cashmere leather interior, a standard 275-horsepower 4.6L Northstar V-8 engine, heated washer fluid, heated and cooled seats, Magnetic Ride Control, six standard air bags and Buick accessories including a wood steering wheel and shift knob, 18-inch chrome wheels with a 10-spoke design, a unique exhaust tip, spoiler and more. Woods' autograph, which is authenticated by Upper Deck, appears on a plaque inside the Lucerne.
As official car of the PGA Tour, Buick supplies courtesy vehicles for players and tournament officials at more than 20 PGA Tour stops.
