Long-time sponsor of golfing events all over the world, Buick, has signed an endorsement deal with professional golfer Shanshan Feng. Feng, who is currently ranked sixth in the Women’s World Golf rankings, will serve as a brand ambassador for golf events the automaker sponsors in China.
Feng is the first player from mainland China to become a member of the American LPGA Tour and the first to win a major championship. She is also the only Chinese player to play on the three most prominent women’s golf tours, the LPGA Tour, the LPGA of Japan Tour and the Ladies European tour.
“Shanshan Feng is a role model for the younger generation who are pursuing their dreams,” GM China President Matt Tsien said in a statement. “She exemplifies Buick’s passionate and progressive brand philosophy.”
Feng has won 10 tournaments as well as the Chinese National Games Championship since first becoming professional in 2007. She has been in the top 10 of the Women World Golf rankings for 90 consecutive weeks, peaking in third position.
