BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. — US LBM has announced a multi-year sponsorship agreement with Bernhard Langer, one of the "winningest" players in professional golf history.

Gibson. "His dedication to family, insatiable hunger for success, and commitment to the mastery of his craft are traits we admire and share, and we are thrilled to partner with Bernhard as he continues his success on the course."
As part of the partnership, US LBM's logo will be prominently featured on Langer's left sleeve during all professional tour events, and Langer will participate in several promotional and hospitality events on and off the PGA TOUR for the company.
"I'm extremely excited to be partnering with US LBM," Langer said.
