GLEN ALLEN, Va., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Scientific, Inc.

In golf, Fred Couples, Anatabloc's first brand ambassador, held a position near the top of the leaderboard for nearly three of the four tournament days at the Masters, and had a strong finish with a round of 71 on Sunday.  Couples, who finished in 13 th place,  was the highest finisher in the seniors division.  Couples was the 1992 Masters champion, which made him the first American golfer to reach the Number 1 ranking in the Official World Golf Rankings.  His Masters successes also have included five top-five finishes and eleven finishes in the top ten – He finished in sixth place three years ago, in 2010. A 28-time Masters competitor, Couples has referred in recent years to the physical challenges that four successive rounds of golf present due to a history of back pain and inflammation.  He also has commented frequently about the role he believes Anatabloc® has played in managing the inflammation linked with that issue.  Couples, who will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame on May 6, 2013, is the Captain of the 2013 Presidents Cup, a biennial team match-play tournament played by 24 of the world's top golfers.  

In tennis, the Company's newest Anatabloc® brand ambassador, John Isner, won his first career title on a clay court at the US Men's Clay Court Championship in Houston, Texas.  Isner dominated the tournament throughout the entire weekend.  Heading into the finals on Sunday, Isner faced opponent Nicolas Almagro, ATP's 12 th ranked player in the world who holds the third most clay court victories in current professional tennis.  Isner defeated Almagro in two sets (6-3, 7-5).

"We want to send a special congratulations and thank you to both of our Anatabloc® brand ambassadors who showed true sportsmanship and talent this weekend.  Their performances rocked the golf and tennis worlds!  To have the ability to compete at such a high level as the Masters is amazing for anyone, but the fact that Couples plays on both the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour makes it a truly remarkable accomplishment.  And for Isner to defeat one of the top clay court players in the world is an outstanding victory," stated David Dean, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Star Scientific.

As brand ambassadors for Anatabloc®, both Couples and Isner display the Anatabloc® logo on their clothing during competition.  Anatabloc®, the Company's dietary supplement, is designed to provide anti-inflammatory support through dietary supplementation.
