Adam Scott becomes brand ambassador for Mercedes
October 4, 2011

The 31 year-old Australian has had a hugely successful year, including his best finish at a Major championship when he finished tied for second place at The Masters in Augusta. He also triumphed at the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, earning him his first career World Golf Championship.

The Australian is currently ranked 9th in the Official World Golf Rankings. The association with Mercedes-Benz will begin in January 2012, and will entail global TV advertising, global print advertising, international PR and social media.

Scott commented: "It's a real honour to be involved with Mercedes-Benz - a brand with a reputation which is second to none, and whose values mirror those of golf. The company is a huge supporter of the sport around the globe, partnering three major tournaments; The Masters, The Open Championship and The PGA Championship as international automobile partner. Its involvement also impacts the amateur game with The Mercedes Trophy, a tournament in its 22nd year, which attracts 60,000 amateur golfers from over 60 countries annually."

Scott continued: "It's great to be part of a brand that is extensively engaged not only in the world of golf but also other platforms that fit so well with my personal interests. Its motorsport activities are a given, but its sponsorship of Fashion Weeks across the world are fantastic."

Mercedes-Benz Global Marketing Director, Lüder Fromm, commented: "I'm delighted to welcome Adam Scott to the Mercedes-Benz family - our values of fascination, perfection and responsibility fit perfectly with Adam's own principles. He has had such a great year, and we believe that he will be a valuable asset to the Mercedes-Benz golf. He's a new breed of golfer who embodies Mercedes-Benz values both on and off the course - the best or nothing."
