Startin Suzuki has announced sponsorship of PGA Professional golfer, Ian Henry who has received an 18-reg Vitara.
The latest agreement puts him at the wheel of a fully branded ’18-plate Suzuki Vitara SZ5 compact SUV, worth over £20,000, which he will use to travel to competitive and coaching commitments.
Based at the nearby Worcester Golf and Country Club, Henry has several PGA medals and Pro-Am competition wins to his name, and is also a youth coach, heading up two Worcestershire County teams.
Startin Suzuki St Peter’s Worcester’s dealer principal Richard Eldridge said: “It’s our pleasure to support Ian with a Startin Suzuki car.
"He’s had a relationship with the Startin Group for over 10 years, and to have the opportunity to provide him with a Suzuki Vitara came about at the perfect time.
“In fact, we’ve already sold a new Suzuki to a local golf enthusiast purely through this association, with other enquiries also taking place. No doubt this will only increase as Ian takes his Vitara around the local golf courses and people talk to him about it.”
The backing of the sportsman follows the Startin Group’s long-standing association with the Worcester Golf and Country Club’s head PGA professional, Graham Farr.
Henry said: “The Suzuki Vitara has to be the most practical car I’ve had for family and sporting trips.
"The team at Startin Suzuki is friendly, knowledgeable, and has supported me with this fantastic sponsorship. I have now bought a Suzuki Swift for my partner which she loves."
