UPDATE -- PGA TOUR Professional Jim Furyk Becomes Web.com's Golf Ambassador

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com Group, Inc., a leading provider of internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, is proud to announce PGA TOUR professional Jim Furyk will become the Company's official golf ambassador.

Furyk will play an active role in creating wider awareness of Web.com and the Web.com Tour, including wearing the Web.com logo on the left chest of his tournament apparel. The agreement continues through the 2016 season.

"Having a partnership with Jim Furyk is the perfect complement to our new relationship with the PGA TOUR and umbrella sponsorship of the Web.com Tour," noted Web.com Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Brown. "Jim's tremendous success embodies the hard work and determination to succeed that we recognize both on the golf course and in the small businesses that we serve."

Furyk began his career on the Web.com Tour in 1993 and has had an extremely successful career on the PGA TOUR, winning the 2003 U.S. Open Championship and the 2010 FedExCup.  Furyk credits his experiences on the Web.com Tour with helping prepare him for future success on the PGA TOUR. 

As part of the agreement, Web.com will work with Furyk to design new websites for both his golf brand and his charitable foundation, The Jim and Tabitha Furyk Foundation.

"Web.com's mission is to help businesses with the online marketing tools they need to be successful, and it will be great to have their expertise in these areas that are so important to me," said Furyk. "I'm excited to be part of the Web.com team and look forward to working together to help others learn about the Company while bringing more visibility to the Web.com Tour."

Brown added, "In addition to Jim's talent and success on both the Web.com Tour and the PGA TOUR, we felt his integrity and professionalism align ideally with our Company values. We're both proud and excited to have Jim as our ambassador to the golf world for the next four years."
