Mitsubishi Electric announced today that it has signed a global sponsorship agreement with World Golf Hall of Fame member, PGA TOUR and Champions Tour golfer, Tom Watson. As part of the agreement, Watson will display the Mitsubishi Electric corporate logo on his hat.
Watson will wear the Mitsubishi Electric logo starting this week at the 144th Open Championship at St. Andrews. This event has special significance for Watson, as it will be the 40th anniversary of his first Open win in 1975 at Carnoustie. It could also be the last Open Championship of his career. The R&A granted Watson a special exemption to play in this year’s event.
