Buick, the premium international automotive brand of General Motors,
is giving one lucky person an exclusive opportunity to play golf
alongside Tiger Woods, the world’s top golfer. Only this time, Woods
will serve as the winner’s personal caddy in Buick’s new “Tee-Off with
Tiger” online contest that begins today and runs through Sept. 28, 2008.
Contestants who register at www.teeoffwithtiger.com
will have an opportunity to vie for the grand prize to partner with
Woods or to win a high-end collectible only Buick can provide: Woods’
personal Buick vehicle – driven by the golf phenom himself – at several
tournaments in which he competes during the promotion window. Every
Buick vehicle Woods drives will come with a Tiger Woods autographed
plaque, which is authenticated by Upper Deck.
“This is going
to be as much fun for me as it is for the winners,” said Woods. “I’m
looking forward to sharing some golf tips, maybe a few jokes and
certainly a lot of laughs,” he said.
To participate, entrants
record their scorecard predictions for each of 18 holes Woods plays
during four rounds of golf at each tournament he competes in, during
the promotion period. If the contestant chooses not to pick the scores
for a specific round, an “auto-fill” option is available. If this
feature is selected, random, computer-generated scores will be assigned
to each hole for that round.
The entrant who best guesses
the most holes closest to Woods’ actual score for that particular
tournament will win Woods’ Buick. The top 10 entrants from each
tournament will become finalists and be placed in a pool. From that
pool, the grand prize winner will be drawn.
The grand prize
winner will receive two round-trip, coach airfare tickets to La Jolla,
Calif., site of the 2008 Buick Invitational and U.S. Open, two nights’
hotel accommodations, golf merchandise and more. Woods will serve as
the winner’s personal caddy for nine holes on Mon., Oct. 20 at Torrey
Pines in La Jolla.
Buick’s “Tee-Off with Tiger” promotion also
features several instant-win prizes for each tournament in which Woods
competes. Participants have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to
either Nike Golf or the PGA Tour Superstore while navigating through
vehicle tours at www.teeoffwithtiger.com. Prizes are selected randomly.
