DORAL, Fla., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In addition to seeing the world's top golfers, fans will have a chance this week to raise their own game at the Cadillac Championship, part of the 2011 World Golf Championships series.
The tournament is being held today through Sunday at the Doral Resort & Spa's TPC Blue Monster. The PGA Tour confirmed last week that the Top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking have all committed to compete in the Cadillac Championship.
"We're pleased to have an elite field vying for the title at the Cadillac Championship," said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac marketing. "Cadillac is built on the principal of always striving to be the best. We expect fans to be treated to intense competition on the course and a host of activities off the course that allow them to take their own golf skills to a higher level."
During the tournament, Cadillac will offer fans professional instruction and a chance to win a CTS-V Coupe at the Cadillac Performance Center. The center will feature swing and putting analysis systems, ball-fittings by Bridgestone and playing simulators that put fans on the Blue Monster's 15th hole, one of the course's Par 3 holes.
On one of the simulators for the 15th hole, the four-closest shots to the pin each day will be invited back for a chance to make a hole-in-one and win a CTS-V Coupe. During official tournament play, any professional golfer making a hole-in-one at the 15th hole also will win a CTS-V Coupe.
A finalist for 2011 World Performance Car of the Year, the CTS-V Coupe features a 6.2L supercharged V8 delivering 556 horsepower, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires and a Magnetic Ride Control suspension system that can read and react to the road 1,000 times a second. The CTS-V Coupe starts at $64,340, including destination charges.
In addition to the Cadillac Performance Center, Cadillac will host fans at the Cadillac Experience, a showcase for the newest vehicles in the luxury brand's line. Guests will receive a complimentary sleeve of Bridgestone golf balls and exclusive access to some of the best view areas on holes 17 and 18.
The Cadillac Performance Center and Cadillac Experience are open each day during the tournament from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and available at no extra charge to ticketholders.
