THE U.S. OPEN IS BACK at Pebble Beach Golf Links. So is Lexus, the longtime partner and official vehicle of the United States Golf Association (USGA).

This week at Pebble Beach, Lexus is providing golf fans a range of activities at the Lexus Performance Experience tent. They include:

  • Autograph sessions with Lexus golfers Jason Day, Peter Jacobsen and Johnny Miller
  • A chance to win a two-year lease on a 2019 Lexus UX with a simulated hole-in-one challenge
  • The Lexus Epic Putt opportunity to win a golf clinic with Lexus Golf Ambassadors

“From thrilling racing simulators to rewarding hole-in-one challenges, we connect with golfers of all ages in memorable and unique ways throughout the tournament,” said Lisa Materazzo, vice president of Lexus marketing.

The Lexus Performance Experience is located near the main entrance in Fan Central. Following are more details about the various activities.

With the Lexus Racing RC F GT3 Driving Simulator, fans have the chance to step into the driver’s seat of an RC F GT3 racecar for an exhilarating experience.

Attendees are also invited to hone their golfing skills with the Lexus Hole-in-One Challenge. The fan that sinks the ball in this simulated replica of the famous par-three 7th hole from the Pebble Beach Golf Links will win a two-year lease on a 2019 Lexus UX, the automaker’s first-ever luxury compact crossover.

Additional activities include the “Putt Like a Pro” simulation, photo opportunities with the U.S. Open Trophy and autograph sessions with Lexus Golf Ambassadors*Jason Day, Patrick Cantlay and Charles Howell III, among others.

For the first time, fans are also invited to take part in the Epic Putt presented by Lexus. Located at the bottom of the hill in Fan Central, the Epic Putt gives fans the opportunity to attempt three putts on a Pebble Beach putting green. Fans who make the third and final “epic putt” will win a prize and exclusive access to a golf clinic with Lexus Golf Ambassadors.

Lexus will also offer 100 VIP parking spaces for owners driving their Lexus vehicles to the U.S. Open on a first-come, first-served basis. Additionally, Lexus Hotel Partner Pebble Beach Resorts is offering a complimentary shuttle in Lexus vehicles to all hotel guests during the championship weekend.

Over the course of the championship, Lexus will provide more than 300 courtesy vehicles to players and officials. Several Lexus vehicles will be displayed throughout the grounds, including the 2020 RX F SPORT prototype, ES 300h, LS 500 F SPORT and NX 300 F SPORT. The LC 500 Inspiration Series and the RC F Track Edition can be viewed in the Lexus Performance Experience tent. Also located within the Epic Putt experience, fans will find a modified Lexus UX with a golf theme.

*Current Lexus Golf Ambassadors include: Jason Day, Patrick Cantlay, Charles Howell III, Wesley Bryan, Jamie Sadlowski, Lydia Ko, Annika Sörenstam, Natalie Gulbis, Johnny Miller, Peter Jacobsen, Mark O’Meara and Mark Pfeil.
