2003 Buick Scramble National Championship Headquarters Moves to Grande Lakes Orlando

DETROIT, Mich., Jan. 23 - Buick announced today that Tiger Woods, the world's number one golfer, will return as honorary chairman of the Buick Scramble national amateur golf tournament for a second season.

As the honorary chairman of the 2003 Buick Scramble, Woods will be featured in tournament marketing and advertising materials and is scheduled to participate in the awards ceremony following the conclusion of the final round of the National Championships at Grande Lakes Orlando on October 12.

"Tiger has been an outstanding spokesperson for Buick since we signed a marketing partnership with him in 1999," said Larry Peck, Buick's golf marketing manager. "We are very excited to announce that he is scheduled to continue in his role as Buick Scramble Honorary Chairman in 2003, the 20th anniversary of this great tournament."

"I am honored to continue as honorary chairman of this great event, one that I tried to play when I was an amateur," said Woods, who begins his fourth year as a Buick spokesperson. "I look forward to returning to the exciting atmosphere of the Buick Scramble National Championships in October this year."

Woods, 27, has a marketing partnership with Buick. He appears in Buick advertisements, participates in Buick golf promotions and uses a golf bag featuring the Buick logo.

The National Championship headquarters for the 2003 Buick Scramble will move from Walt Disney World Resort to Grande Lakes Orlando, a brand new world-class golf resort scheduled to open on July 1. The final round of competition is scheduled to take place on the new Greg Norman course at Grande Lakes Orlando's Ritz Carlton Golf Club.

The 2003 Buick Scramble kicks-off with nearly 2,000 local championship tournaments starting in February. Open to amateur golfers of all ages and skill levels, participants with certified USGA Handicap Indexes compete as four-person teams in a scramble-type format. The local winners advance, along with their respective host PGA Professional, to one of 130 PGA sectional (regional) championships. The sectional winners advance to the national championships in Orlando, October 8-12.

The Buick Scramble offers first class treatment of its participants, families and guests during national championships week. A total of 72-holes of tournament golf, two lavish Buick parties and passes to Universal Studios' theme parks are a few of the attractions that are in store for PGA Professionals, amateurs and their families who advance to the national championships.

The Buick Scramble, now in its 20th season and second under the Buick banner, is sanctioned by the PGA of America. The tournament is run by Momentum in Troy, Mich.

The official car of The PGA of America and the PGA Tour, Buick is title-sponsor of three PGA Tour events and presenting sponsor of the PGA Club Professional Championship.
