Maxxis sponsors LPGA golfer

March 4, 2004

Maxxis International-U.S.A. will sponsor professional golfer Candie Kung during the 2004 LPGA Tour season.

Kung has been an LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) member since August 2001. She won three tour titles in 2003 and finished sixth on the LPGA money list.

Until now, Maxxis had confined its sports marketing efforts in the United States to on/off-road racing and rock crawling championships. The company recently announced it was sponsoring the 2004 United Rock Crawling & Off Road Challenge (UROC) series, which begins its six-event season this month.
