 THE Papua New Guinea Golf Open will  continue to carry the Export Lager brand 2014.

This support was made known last Thursday in Port Moresby where the event was launched together with the PNG Golf Association.

SP Brewery general manager Stan Joyce said that in the brewery’s sixth consecutive year as naming rights sponsors, they had witnessed the positive development of golf in the country as they partner with PNGGA in maintaining the PNG Open as one of the best tournaments in the South Pacific region.

“I urge traditional sponsors as well as interested corporate companies to come forward and stand behind a prominent sporting event that promotes Papua New Guinea to the region,” Joyce said.

The 2014 PNG Open will be staged from May 1-4th.

PNG Golf Association president Stan Walker expressed his thanks to SP Brewery for their continuous support through the sport as they were given A$145, 000 (K355,000).
