February 16: Top Filipino golfer Angelo Que can look forward to swinging the club in an even smoother fashion this year as Perskindol, the company that produce massage gels and sprays, have forged a sponsorship agreement with him.
Que, who enjoyed an outstanding 2008 season, winning the Mercedes-Benz Tour Order of Merit title and the Philippine Open, is one of the region’s rising stars and will therefore provide Perskindol with a perfect opportunity to expand into the Philippine market.
The Swiss company are the Official Massage Gel and Spray of the Mercedes-Benz Tour and have already established themselves in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
In this new initiative, Que will wear the Perskindol logo on his sleeve and also place one on his golf bag. The Filipino will also make appearances at certain Perskindol events.
“I am extremely appreciative to Perskindol for showing interest in me and I know that they have a product which is very effective. Many players on the Mercedes-Benz Tour have commented that it certainly has the required result after a day on the golf course,” said Que, who fired a final round six-under-par 66 on Sunday to finish in the top-20 in the Malaysian Open.
The 31 year old claimed one title on the Mercedes-Benz Tour last year at the ICSTI Mt. Malarayat Championship in the Philippines and was second on two occasions.
However, the main highlights of his year were winning his national Open for the first time for his second victory on the Asian Tour, and playing in his first Major championship at the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale in July.
He also teamed up with Mars Pucay in the World Cup and finished in an extremely respectable joint 10th place.
“This is an exciting new sponsorship for Perskindol which sees Angelo Que become a brand ambassador for us. As well as being an outstanding golfer, he also has a great personality and we therefore look forward to this new relationship,” said Peter Kunz, Regional Director, Vifor S.A.
As well as golf, Perskindol are involved with many other sports including football, rugby and basketball.
Que is one of a number of leading players on the Asian Tour managed by World Sport Group.
