Airbus tees off LPGA Classic partnership

French aircraft manufacturer Airbus has reached a deal to become the title sponsor for the 2014 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic golf tournament.

The event will be staged from May 22-25 at RTJ Magnolia Grove in Mobile, Alabama.

Airbus is increasing its presence in the region through the sponsorship at a time when its first US-based aircraft assembly plant is currently under construction at Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley.

American golfer Jennifer Johnson won the 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic, securing $180,000 (€132,700) of a $1.2m prize fund.
