17 March 2009

Bogotá, March 16 2009. Club Colombia, leading premium brand in the market, announce the presence of Camilo Villegas - one of the brand's ambassadors - in a new version of the Golf Clinic organized each year by the brand, to be held on the coming Wednesday starting at three in the afternoon in the Los Fundadores course of the Bogotá Country Club, for close to three thousand consumers of Club Colombia who are golf enthusiasts. For the first time Camilo will share all of his knowledge throughout nine holes, along with his brother Manuel and will demonstrate how after years of hard work, dedication and attention to detail, he has become the best golfer in Colombian history.

Concepts and movements such as the grip, the stance, the swing, the chipping and the putting; the correct use of irons and woods; the handling of short hits; as well as correction of common mistakes among the students, will be only some of the "subjects" which will be covered by this new clinic which Camilo will impart exclusively for lovers of golf and of Club Colombia under the motto "the best is to learn from the best". This will be the only opportunity for consumers of Club Colombia and enthusiasts, professional and golf fans to see Villegas up close, and in action, during this visit to Colombia.

At the end of the clinic, Camilo Villegas will hold an autograph signing session for one hundred special guests of Club Colombia, who will be able to share in private with the national idol.

After this short visit to Colombia, Villegas will rest for a few days before competing in the Shell Houston Open, from March 30th to April 5th, to be held in the Redstone Golf Club Tournament Course of Humble, Texas and which distributes 500 points for the FedEx Cup.

Andrés Felipe Rodríguez, Corporate Relations Director of Bavaria, added that: "We have all seen how after years of effort, dedication and attention to detail, Camilo has become a mandatory reference when talking about the best of golf. Events such as this seek precisely the same for the brand: for people to discover that behind the brewing process of Club Colombia there is time, care and dedication, which have already made it into a beer with the highest international quality standards and credentials."
