Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

Com­pet­ing against 34 teams of 114 am­a­teur golfers from 40 coun­tries, Team Thai­land con­quered the BMW Golf Cup In­ter­na­tional World Fi­nal 2016 with a to­tal score of 317 points in the Na­tional Team Cat­e­gory, earn­ing their first-ever vic­tory at the tour­na­ment.

Team Singapore, rep­re­sented by Chen Xiao­qin, Den­nis Lim and Koh Hong Soon, proudly se­cured the run­ner-up po­si­tion scor­ing a to­tal of 298 points in the Na­tional Team Cat­e­gory. In the in­di­vid­ual com­pe­ti­tions, vic­tory went to Tsung Hui Lee from Tai­wan (Ladies, 104), Mex­i­can Felipe Olvera (Men’s I, 113) and Htun Htun Soe (Myan­mar, Men’s II, 106).

Colin Mont­gomerie was guest of hon­our at the World Fi­nal. Over the

course of the week, he of­fered the fi­nal­ists plenty of ad­vice on how to play the two spec­tac­u­lar cour­ses – the “Ma­jlis Course” and the “Faldo Course” – both nestled in the desert land­scape. The vic­to­ri­ous Ry­der Cup cap­tain from 2010 thrilled all the par­tic­i­pants with an ex­clu­sive golf clinic as well, af­ter which he pre­sented the tro­phies at the Gala Din­ner.

Mr. Horst Herd­tle, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Per­for­mance Mo­tors Ltd said,

“We are happy to con­grat­u­late Team Singapore for se­cur­ing sec­ond place at the BMW Golf Cup In­ter­na­tional World Fi­nal. De­spite some tense mo­ments over the course of the com­pe­ti­tion, they re­mained fo­cused, com­posed and gave a fan­tas­tic ac­count of them­selves. The sec­ond place fin­ish was the best ever re­sult achieved by Team Singapore at the World Fi­nal. We are con­fi­dent that this ex­pe­ri­ence in Dubai will stand them in good stead for fu­ture tour­na­ments. We would also like to con­grat­u­late Team Thai­land on their maiden vic­tory.”

Team Thai­land took the win with 317 points (106-105-106) in the Na­tional Team Cat­e­gory, while the three Thai golfers took the fol­low­ing tro­phies for the in­di­vid­ual cat­e­gories:

The BMW Golf Cup In­ter­na­tional is re­garded as one of the world’s largest and most renowned in­ter­na­tional am­a­teur golf tour­na­ment se­ries, with par­tic­i­pa­tion of more than 100,000 golfers from more than 50 coun­tries, play­ing in more than 800 tour­na­ments around the world. The World Fi­nal is more than just a top-class golf­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The World Fi­nal­ists and their guests stayed in the lux­u­ri­ous Wal­dorf As­to­ria Dubai ho­tel on the world fa­mous “The Palm Jumeirah”. Ex­clu­sive even­ing events and an of­f­course pro­gramme tak­ing in the many at­trac­tions on of­fer in Dubai made the trip to the United Arab Emi­rates a truly once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence.

Vic­to­ri­ous Team Thai­land!
