Mitsubishi Sponsors Golfer

SUWANEE, Ga. - Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating announces its sponsorship of Champions Tour golfer Fred Funk.

Funk is a top 10 competitor on the Champions Tour and participates in select PGA Tour tournaments during the year. He is a winner of eight PGA Tour events, including the 2005 Players Championship and six Champion Tour wins, which include three majors.

“We are honored to sponsor Fred,” said Bill Rau, senior vice president and general manager, Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating. “Mitsubishi Electric has a history of sponsorship of professional golf activities, and sponsoring Fred is another great opportunity for us.”

As part of Fred’s sponsorship, his golf bag will carry the Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating logo as well as his right shirt collar. This presence will help Mitsubishi Electric raise awareness of their cooling and heating products among target customers, the company said.

In 2007, Mitsubishi Electric became a PGA Tour sponsor, and in 2009, became the title sponsor for the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai, which Funk won in 2008. Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating will be sponsoring Funk from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012.
