Mercedes-Benz of Thousand Oaks Provides Fleet to PGA’s Powershares QQQ Championship Golf Tournament

October 31st, 2017 by

The Powershares QQQ Championship made its annual run at the exclusive and picturesque Sherwood Country Club from October 27th to October 29th, 2017. Mercedes-Benz of Thousand Oaks is proud to have supported the tournament with a 30-vehicle fleet for the top-monied players in the field, which included golf legends Miguel Angel Jimenez, Fred Couples, Vijay Singh, and tournament winner, Bernhard Langer. Coincidentally, Mr. Langer is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, so his win was a win for the brand as well.

The vehicle fleet met players at LAX and transported them all over the Conejo Valley during their stay in the area. Mercedes-Benz of Thousand Oaks’ activation included two AMG® vehicles at the country club’s entrances, a 2017 Mercedes-AMG® S 63 Cabriolet at the clubhouse, and the 2018 Mercedes-AMG® GLE 63 S at the tournament’s general admission entrance.

The GLE (aka “Greenzilla”) has, in fact, become a bit of a local legend and internet sensation as it features a stunning green livery that was produced with WrapLabs in tribute to the 2018 Mercedes-AMG® GT R. In the end, the tournament saw over 15,000 people pass through its gates over the three days, and Mercedes-Benz of Thousand Oaks contributed marketing and promotions to the local market that attracted attendees from Malibu, Camarillo, Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Oxnard, Simi Valley, Santa Monica, and all over Ventura County and southern California.

The weather for the event was absolutely perfect, and the golf wasn’t bad either. Indeed, the final day of the second stop of the Charles Schwab Cup saw an 18th-hole shootout between Miguel Angel Jimenez and Bernhard Langer, ultimately resulting in the Langer victory. In an unfortunate turn of events, the legendary golfer and crowd favorite, John Daly, was forced to withdraw on the first day of play due to a knee injury.
