"Hertz has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Arnold Palmer, from our continued sponsorship of the Invitational to our earlier days when Arnold played a prominent role in our advertising," commented Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "Hertz has a robust roster of sports relationships and our continued partnership with the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard highlights the importance of the sport and the incremental value we receive reaching its loyal fan base."

"Nothing pleases me more than to know that my long-time association with Hertz continues with the four-year extension of its associate sponsorship of our tournament," Palmer said. "Hertz has been a loyal and generous supporter of the tournament through most of its existence and has played an important role in raising its stature to the high level the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard enjoys today."
