CHENG QUALIFIES FOR TAWGC GRAND FINAL
Turkish Airlines presents the 5th edition of Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup
(TAWGC), the largest amateur golf tournament around the world. The global amateur golf competition, where thousands of participants will compete at qualifying events in 100 destinations worldwide, is one of the several international sports organisations backed by Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to more countries than any other. Now in the fifth year, Hong Kong featured 52 players, all personally-invited guests of Turkish Airlines.
Edmond Cheng won the individual competition with 47 Stableford Net points and progressed to the Grand Final in Antalya, Turkey, this October and November. David Tin Lung Leung was runner-up, Gary Leung was third and Edith Law and How Liang Te won the nearest-the-pin prizes. “We would like to offer our congratulations to everyone who made the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup qualifier in Hong Kong such a special day,” said Ahmet Serhat Sari, General Manager for Turkish Airlines Hong Kong. “It was a fantastic tournament and well done to our winner, Edmond Cheng. They still have so much to play for in Antalya, but everyone else will be looking forward to coming back again next year.
All finalists are to enjoy a sevennight stay at the five-star luxury Titanic Deluxe Belek hotel in Antalya, Turkey and will be flown with Business Class from their qualifying destination by Turkish Airlines. The overall winners of the tworound Grand Final at the Titanic Golf Club progress to play in the 2017 Turkish Airlines Open pro-am.
The TAWGC Amateur Series offers key clients and industry experts the opportunity to network with like-minded business executives at the same time as enjoying and competing at some of the world’s most prestigious courses. It forms part of a wider commitment to golf by Turkish Airlines, who, in addition to the Turkish Airlines Open, also sponsor events on the Ladies European Tour and Challenge Tour.
