Compaq - Associate Sponsor 2002 NZ Golf Open

Compaq Announces As First Associate Sponsor Of The 2002 Telstrasaturn Hyundai New Zealand Golf Open

AUCKLAND, August 31, 2001 – Compaq Computer NZ announced today as an associate sponsor of the TelstraSaturn Hyundai New Zealand Golf Open.

Compaq is the first associate sponsor to be named for the Open, which will take place at Paraparaumu, Wellington from 8-13 January 2002.

“Compaq NZ is excited to be part of this major international event next January,” said Russell Hewitt, Managing Director, Compaq Computer New Zealand.

In sponsoring the tournament Compaq extends the company’s global association with golf. Compaq’s US parent already supports tournaments which include the PGA Tour Compaq Classic, the Ryder Cup and the Compaq Open in Stockholm.

In New Zealand, Compaq has an existing association with local golf. The company supports New Zealand rising golf talent Marcus Wheelhouse who plays in the US based Buy.com tour and the Australian PGA with computing support.

“In addition to being a corporate sponsor of the tournament, we have a number of ideas in development which will introduce hi-tech innovations to the event and enhance the viewing public’s experience at Paraparaumu. We hope to be able to announce some of these initiatives in the coming weeks,” said Hewitt.

Compaq Computer NZ’s sponsorship and technology support to the TelstraSaturn Hyundai New Zealand Golf Open extends the association and technology support the company provides to other high profile New Zealand events and organisations including the Americas Cup 2000, Compaq 50K of Coronet, the Vodafone Silver Ferns, Paralympics New Zealand, Cure Kids and Te Papa.
