An­other over­sub­scribed event or­gan­ised by Transview Golf Sdn Bhd

Golf Asia - - GOLFING SCENE -

Transview Golf Sdn Bhd re­cently held its an­nual J. Lin­de­berg In­vi­ta­tional, which is into its fifth year. Transview Golf, the ex­clu­sive dis­trib­u­tor of the renowned Swedish brand J. Lin­de­berg since the fall of 2007 for South East Asia has been suc­cess­fully us­ing this event as a plat­form to cre­ate brand aware­ness for J. Lin­de­berg and it has proved ef­fec­tive as it is once again, an overly sub­scribed event.

“This jour­ney with J. Lin­de­berg has been a long-stand­ing one, com­ing to 10 years now. At that time when we knew of the brand, it was start­ing to make waves in men’s fash­ion & golf cloth­ing in the United States and when the op­por­tu­nity arose for Transview, we knew that this is the fu­ture of the 21st Cen­tury life­style golf ap­parel brand here in SEA hence the de­ci­sion to sign up with J. Lin­de­berg. It had in­deed proved to be a fruit­ful one, as un­til to­day it is still one of the top pre­mium and most sought af­ter brand for golf ap­par­els,” said Frankie Choo, Di­rec­tor of Transview Golf Sdn Bhd.

“To re­ward our brand loy­al­ists, we have kept to our sig­na­ture com­paign where our par­tic­i­pants get to pick the lat­est J. Lin­de­berg de­sign & mod­els of golf shirt that they want, as com­pared to the tra­di­tional way of giv­ing the same model of ap­parel across in our goodie bag. This is our way of show­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion to our loyal brand fol­low­ers, which have also been a push fac­tor of why our event is al­ways fully sub­scribed,” added Choo.

To add a feather to the cap, par­tic­i­pants of the J. Lin­de­berg In­vi­ta­tional had a sur­prise in store this time, in con­junc­tion with J. Lin­de­berg be­ing the Of­fi­cial Ap­parel of the CIMB Clas­sic 2017 for the third year con­sec­u­tively, winners will be of­fered spots to play in the Cor­po­rate Spon­sors Game at the CIMB Clas­sic. On top of that, one lucky win­ner can def­i­nitely look for­ward to an up close and per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence play­ing with a PGA Pro­fes­sional, as a par­tic­i­pant in the Pro Am Tour­na­ment of the CIMB Clas­sic 2017. The much sought af­ter slot was given out as the grand lucky draw prize of the evening.

Bat­tling for those cov­eted spots at the award win­ning Kota Per­mai Golf & Coun­try Club, par­tic­i­pants played to a stroke play nett for­mat where win­ning scores were capped to a max­i­mum of five un­der (-5). Two medal cat­e­gories were in con­tention, where top four (4) winners from Medal A (hand­i­cap 0-13) and Medal B (hand­i­cap 14-24) will be awarded with prizes.

Ma­jor Mohd Nasir (hand­i­cap 8) play­ing to a nett score of 67 clinched the Medal A Cham­pion ti­tle whereas Rosli Bin Oth­man (hand­i­cap 16) with a nett score of 67 as well, took the Medal B Cham­pion ti­tle, both win­ning the op­por­tu­nity to play in the Cor­po­rate Spon­sors Game come Oc­to­ber at the CIMB Clas­sic rep­re­sent­ing J. Lin­de­berg. The high­light of the evening

went to Kek Kean Yong where he was the envy of many for be­ing the win­ner of the grand lucky draw prize to play in the CIMB Clas­sic Pro Am tour­na­ment.
