Bernhard Langer has completed his golfing year in grand style. After another excellent season that has seen Bernhard with two tournament wins and a record number of 17 top ten finishes during 2012 he has won the Champions Tour Order of Merit and was beaten only by Tom Lehmann in the Charles Schwab Cup. Furthermore from now on the legendary golfer will be adorning the Mercedes-Benz logo on his apparel in an extension to his current yet long standing relationship as a global brand ambassador of Mercedes-Benz.
“It has been a tough couple of weeks but to play as well as I have done is a real thrill. Of course I wanted to win the Champions Tour Order of Merit and the Charles Schwab Cup but Tom was a class of its own today”, says Bernhard Langer. “I am also very proud that from now on I will have the Mercedes-Benz logo on my clothing. We have been partners for many, many years and it feels appropriate that this should happen now.”
Lüder Fromm, head of Global Marketing Communications Mercedes-Benz Cars, comments: “We congratulate Bernhard on yet another great achievement and we are thrilled that our iconic logo will now be such a visible partner on the iconic figure that Bernhard is in the golfing world, not just in Germany, but worldwide.”
