Acer seeks opportunities to connect with our target customers around the world and one of the most engaging ways to achieve this is through sports,” explains Kim Phipps, director, Global Marketing and Brand for Acer.” The LPGA is truly international with events and broadcasts reaching millions of golf fans in many countries where Acer is present, making the relationship a natural fit.”

This is one of the reasons why Acer, the world's No. 2 notebook manufacturer is partnering with the LPGA and that includes this week's ShopRite LPGA Classic in Atlantic City.

This week, right in the shadow of Atlantic City's iconic boardwalk, defending champ, Karrie Webb along with fellow Hall of Famers Juli Inkster and Se Ri Pak, will tee it up with future stars like Lydia Ko and Lexi Thompson, in Atlantic City. The field also features the likes of Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel and Natalie Gulbis, to go along with past champions like Stacy Lewis, Cristie Kerr and Brittany Lincicome.

Acer also has a long history in junior golf that began in 2002 when Acer joined up with the Taiwan Golf Association to start the Acer Golf Program for junior players.

“Acer has been a great supporter of women’s golf and we are pleased to welcome them to the LPGA family,” said Jon Podany, LPGA Chief Marketing Officer. “We appreciate their support of Yani Tseng and we were excited to have them as a presenting sponsor at this year’s ShopRite LPGA Classic. It’s great to see them build on that with an expanded partnership with the LPGA. They are the kind of global brand that is a terrific fit with Golf’s Global Tour.”

This week is also a great way to showcase Atlantic City as a superb golf destination.

“Atlantic City Golf is the best-kept secret on the East Coast and this week’s tournament certainly brings worldwide attention to one of our member courses and our entire destination,” says Greater Atlantic City Golf Association President Tom Sullivan.

New Jersey’s entertainment capital gives golfers the choice of 18 world-class courses designed by the likes of Donald Ross, Tom Doak, Willie Park, Jr., William Flynn and Hurdzan and Fry among many others.

Visitors and locals love Cape May National in the south, along with Sea Oaks Golf Club in the north. The layouts offer everything from traditional parkland style to true links setups. You will see vistas and views in Atlantic City that you won't see anywhere else in the world.

Atlantic City isn't just known for gambling, some of the best hotels in the country, and fine dining. Did you know, the term “birdie” originated at Atlantic City Country Club, which has hosted six USGA events. Also, Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club was the site of Sam Snead’s first PGA Championship title and has been hosting the ShopRite LPGA Classic since 1986.

Atlantic City has a rich tradition when it comes to golf and Acer is on board with golf and this great city.

With events like the ShopRite, Acer will continue develop innovative programming, advertisements, and activities during key points of the LPGA season.

Get your Acer, follow the stars of the LPGA, and get to Atlantic City. Who needs a foursome, when you have that trio.
