LA QUINTA, Calif. -- LG Electronics has signed a three-year agreement to become the title sponsor of the Skins Game, which will be played Nov. 25-26 at Trilogy Golf Club in La Quinta.

With a $1 million purse, the Skins game is one of the richest two-day events in golf.

"LG Electronics is thrilled to become the title sponsor of one of the most-watched golf telecasts of the year," said Michael Ahn, president and CEO of LG Electronics North American Headquarters.

Last year, Fred Funk set several event records en route to winning 15 skins and $925,000. Funk will play in the event again this year, along with three others to be announced.

This year's Skins Game will be televised by ABC.
