Lexus Scores ‘Hole in One’ with Sponsorship of Pro Golfer Campos
SAN JUAN – Lexus has announced its support for Puerto Rican professional golfer Rafa Campos, who at 27 years old is considered one of the most prominent golfers in Latin America.
Campos, the leader at the Puerto Rico Open last weekend at Coco Beach after each of the first two rounds, finished sixth at the playoffs after hitting a 72.
This is the first time Lexus Puerto Rico sponsors the career of a world-class athlete, an initiative the brand undertakes acknowledging the shared commitment to performance and “pursuit of perfection.”
“To sponsor Rafa Campos is to support Puerto Rican talent that transcends worldwide. We share the same commitment with seeking perfection, with giving our most, with never settling for less, with raising the bar every chance we get. Because of this, at Lexus we consider an honor and a privilege to sponsor Rafa in such an important phase of his career,” said Joseph Barba, director of sales and marketing for Lexus in Puerto Rico.
Campos said he feels, “profoundly grateful for the support and recognition given by Lexus. It is a vote of confidence in my career, not only as an athlete, but as a person who represents Puerto Rico with pride. Everywhere I play I take the Puerto Rican flag and the Lexus insignia with me. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously.”
As part of the sponsorship, Campos will participate in a variety of events held by Lexus during the year, including initiatives with current and potential clients, employees, community programs, and events for children, among others. Campos will also receive a new Lexus NX sport utility vehicle.
Campos is one of the most outstanding Puerto Rican athletes and is classified as the island’s No. 1 golfer, and has represented Puerto Rico during the past 10 years as part of the Puerto Rico National Team.
He has won numerous local and international tournaments and belongs to the Latin American PGA Tour, one of most prestigious golf circuits worldwide.
