Jacqui Concolino signs deal with Florida's Mission Inn Resort & Club

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. -- Mission Inn Resort & Club, the iconic Florida golf destination, has signed LPGA Tour professional Jacqui Concolino to an endorsement agreement for the 2014 season.

Concolino, who grew up in nearby Orlando, will wear the Mission Inn Resort & Club logo on her hat and shirt crest. She also will make several site appearances at the historic Florida resort where she has played since her junior golf days.

"Mission Inn Resort has enjoyed a special connection with Jacqui, which makes her representation of this property on the LPGA Tour particularly rewarding," said Bud Beucher, owner and general manager at Mission Inn Resort & Club. "She is a solid player and a great person, and we could not be happier to have her be identified with our resort."

This will be Concolino's third year on the LPGA Tour, coming off a season where she finished 70th on the tour money list. She was a first-team All American at Vanderbilt University in 2007. Concolino is a member of the board of directors of Fairways for Warriors, for which she serves as golf ambassador.

"I'm so pleased to have the opportunity to represent the Beucher family and Mission Inn Resort," Concolino said. "Between the elevations on El Campeón and the parkland feel of Las Colinas, I'll be able to prepare for any golf course I'll see on the LPGA Tour. I'm really excited that we've formed this partnership."

Mission Inn's El Campeon Golf Course, one of the oldest courses in the South, is a classic from 1917 that is complemented by Las Colinas, where wide fairways roll over gentle rises. Both courses feature large, undulating greens, are surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, and incorporate large water hazards on many holes.
