GREENSBORO, N.C. – – AIG, in combination with AIG United Guaranty, is the newestChrysler Classic of Greensboro Premier Partner. AIG joins VF Corporation and Harris Teeter at the sponsorship level that is second only to Chrysler.
In addition to their Premier Partner status, AIG is the new title sponsor of the Monday Pro-Am, which will now be known as the AIG Support Our Troops Monday Pro-Am. The addition of AIG to the list of Premier Partners is yet another piece of good sponsorship news for the Chrysler Classic. BB&T, Coca-Cola and Lincoln Financial are Tournament Partners, and hospitality facilities for the 2006 tournament are nearly sold out.
“This announcement is another indication of how the Piedmont Triad business community is rallying behind our PGA TOUR event,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “AIG’s Support Our Troops program has been not only successful with the military but also popular with the fans. It’s a fitting tribute to our men and women in the armed forces to rename the Monday Pro-Am in their honor.”
The 2006 Chrysler Classic is set for Oct. 2-8 at Forest Oaks Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. The tournament thanks Daimler-Chrysler for 11 great years of partnership and Premier Partners, AIG, Harris Teeter and VF Corporation. Additional tournament information is available at or through the tournament office at (336) 379-1570.
