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.
