COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2013) -  MLC & Associates, a management-consulting firm focused on improving clients' people, processes, technology and facilities, is proud to be a key sponsor backing Lizette Salas, 23, a professional  golfer who set a remarkable tournament-record of 62 in the final round of the LPGA LOTTE Championship in Kapolei, Hawaii.

In the US Women's Open, the biggest "major" tournament of the year, Salas contended for the lead throughout the tournament before strongly finishing tied for 20th, virtually ensuring that she will be representing the United States in August as a member of the US Solheim Cup team. She is currently ranked 19th in the ROLEX™ Women's World Golf Rankings, with 4 top-10 finishes this season, and is the 5th highest-ranked American in just her second year on the LPGA Tour. The young golfer has graciously accredited MLC & Associates for its supportive sponsorship throughout the tour. 

The rising star's next appearance on the LPGA tour circuit will be at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, July 11-14 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada -- a challenging tournament in which MLC and a growing fan base throughout the country look forward to watching Salas shine.

"We sponsor Lizette because she epitomizes our mission of empowering performance," says Mary Carrido, chairman and founder of MLC & Associates. "We're thrilled that she's attracted such a great reputation for her hard work and talent. She has played exceptionally and made us proud."

Salas is an ideal representative for MLC & Associates, a company that guides large and mid-size clients in a wide range of public and private sector industries. The MLC team puts unparalleled experience and expertise in finance, engineering and economics to work for clients. Its own commitment to outperform competitors helped the firm double its sales between 2011 and 2012 -- a feat it plans to match for each of the next five years.
