Buick begins promotion to give away Tiger Woods` car : Lucerne CXS

Posted on by 16

No one will ever know what it’s like to walk a mile in Tiger Woods’ shoes. But someone might soon find out what it’s like to drive thousands of miles in Tiger’s car.

General Motors Corp.’s Buick division said Monday it will launch a promotion this week that will give away a new Buick Lucerne CXS luxury sedan driven by Woods every time he wins a PGA Tour tournament this year.

Buick is calling it the "Tiger Wins, You Could Win" promotion, which begins with Woods’ season debut at this week’s Buick Invitational at La Jolla, Calif., and ends at the PGA Championship in August.

Each car, which will serve as Woods’ personal courtesy car the week of the tournament, will be manufactured at GM’s assembly plant in Hamtramck, according to Buick golf marketing manager Larry Peck.

The high-end cars have a suggested retail of about $40,260. Each car will be painted black and include 18-inch chrome wheels, a spoiler, a V-8 engine, heated and cooled seats and even heated windshield washer fluid, Peck said. Also, cars that are awarded will feature a commemorative plaque with Woods’ signature.

"I’m happy to give away as many Lucernes as I can — because that means I’m winning," Woods said in a released statement. "This year, I will have to be careful about leaving anything in the car after the tournament."

In the event Woods doesn’t win a tournament in which he plays, there will a drawing for a trip for two to meet Woods and have a chance to win a car at Buick event in October at Los Angeles.

"Whenever he plays, somebody’s going to win," Peck said by telephone Monday.

For the record, Woods won six PGA Tour events last season, including the Buick Invitational.

My biggest dream is to meet Tiger. I seen him at the Buick Open. What a wonderful experience. If my dream to ever meet him never comes true having his car would be the 2nd greatest thing to me. I AM His Biggest FAN!!! I wish you luck Tiger to WIN!!

I would love to have the opportunity to win but was having trouble filling out the entire form then when i went back to the web site the entry form wasnt available.....

I would love to win the Buick. It would be nice to drive a car that Tiger Woods have drixen.

We would love yto win Tigers Buick Lucern and hope he wins the tournament tomorrow. but can’t find the sign up sheet

I have decided to take up golf as soon as I have recooperated from my surgery. I am 74 and am a bowler, but decided after watching all these matches on TNT, that I have to do this. The matches this year have been wonderful, I love watching Tiger and all the others. This PGA has been great. Thanks to Buick for bringing it to me.

TIGER WOODS IS NO DOUBT MY REASON FOR WATCHING THE SPORT OF GOLF. I JUST RECENTLY HAD A CAR ACCIDENT AND HAVE NO TRANSPORTATION TO GO TO WORK. IF I COULD BE THE RECIPIENT OF A BUICK CAR WON BY TIGER I WOULD BE THE HAPPIEST GOLF FAN IN THE WORLD.

I would like to win one of TIger’s cars. Buick is a fine care.

I think a Buick is a fine car.

I started playing golf at 42, and now wished I had started eariler in life.
I absolutlely love the game. It is probably the hardest thing i’ve ever done
in my life and the most frustrating, but I still go out and play. I enjoy watching Tiger play, and have been to a couple of the Buick Opens of Michigan. I wish him luck, not only in the tournaments but also in all he does. Go get ’em Tiger.

well, we love watch this man amaze the tv audience. Woods is golf’s biggest superstar since Jack Nicklaus

I love to watch Tiger Woods play golf; cannot believe he has almost surpassed all of the old golf records set by everyone, "he is good", and he does seem like a very nice person to boot. butch johnson
Oh Yes — please register me in the Tiger Woods, Buick give away (every time Tiger wins). thks.

Congratulations on the win today at the Buick Invitational. We knew you could do it.

You have our permission to send the Buick Lucerne a.s.a.p. It look like a winner too!
I sure would like to be a winner too!

Thanks
Dan

My husband and I are 6l yrs old, never watched golf until we moved to NC l995, and my husband began to play golf at 51. I watched Tiger play and got hooked on watching golf-I try to get interested in some of the others play but to be honest, I really only watch when he is in competion, and I root for him to win, course my husband watches all the tournaments. My husband’s dream is to attend golf school when we sell our home and he can retire at 65-Course to win the Buick would be great, we currently drive an old 9l Ford crown Vic—win or loose, I still won’t miss a tournament if Tiger is playing. Good Luck Tiger!

A good friend of our’s has a Buick Lucerne, it’s a very nice car and well equiped. We are very seriously considering purchasing one for ourselves. We look forward to seeing Tiger win many tournaments in 2006. Go get em Tiger.

I would love to win one of Tiger’s cars as he is such a great golfer and I know he will give them away, and the cars are great because I know several people who have one and wouldn’t trade it.
