2022 Prize Car
Charles Schwab Challenge

   Charles Schwab Challenge / ‘79 Fire Bird

The financial corporation meets golf, and golf meets classic cars!

Charles Schwab became the title sponsor of the golf tournament formerly known as the Colonial in Texas. (Now Charles Schwab Challenge.) We found out that our target audience loves old classic cars. Prizing in golf is tiring, so we are bringing the challenger spirit of Charles Schwab to the PGA
by reimagining the prize.

For this year's prize, we fully restored and modernized the 1979 Firebird Trans Am with the word Schwab inscribed in multiple places, including throughout the interior. The car is in homage to sponsor Charles Schwab, and the year is significant because it was when Charles Schwab
made a major technology investment.

To generate buzz around the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge Prize car, an epic ‘79 Bandit,
we commissioned country star Jake Owen to rerecord Jerry Reed’s classic song from Smokey and The Bandit.


We created an AR experience of the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge prize car
to increase fan engagement both onsite and online.
