AUDI NAMED OFFICIAL VEHICLE OF THE 2010 FRYS.COM OPEN

SAN MARTIN, Calif. – Audi will be the “Official Vehicle” of the 2010 Frys.com Open.  As the automobile sponsor, Audi will provide 30 courtesy vehicles throughout the tournament week for use by the PGA TOUR professionals competing in the event, which takes place at CordeValle in San Martin, Calif., October 11-17.

“We are excited to have Audi join the family of sponsors for the Frys.com Open,” said Ian Knight, 2010 Frys.com Open Tournament Director. “Audi, which is known for its top-of-the-line luxury vehicles, will add an extra element to our event that we’re sure the players will appreciate.”

Audi will also sponsor a special on-course event for Frys.com Open participants, the “Audi Hole-in-One” contest, which will take place on the 211-yard, par-3 16th hole. The first professional to make an ace during competition, on the 16th hole, will be awarded the keys to a brand new Audi. Additionally, Audi will also sponsor THE DRIVE, a hospitality tent located in between the 16th green and the 17th tee box. THE DRIVE will be elevated and offer spectators a premium viewing option.

The Frys.com Open is part of the PGA TOUR’s Fall Series and features a full-field (132 players), four-day tournament with a $5 million purse and $900,000 payout to the winner.  The tournament will be played Oct. 11-17 at CordeValle in San Martin, Calif., located just 25 minutes south of title sponsor Fry’s Electronics headquarters in San Jose, Calif.  For more information go to www.frysopengolf.com or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/frysopengolf.
