Turkish Airlines Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup
The third edition of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup came to India, taking place at Bombay Presidency Golf Club on March 21. For the three consecutive years the tournament has gone from strength to strength and has reached 65 destinations across 45 countries. Mumbai itself featured 96 players, all personally-invited guests of Turkish Airlines.
Commenting on the tournament, Mehmet Akay, General Manager, Turkish Airlines Mumbai, said: “We would like to congratulate everyone who took part in the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup qualifier in Mumbai. It was a brilliant day and well done to our winners, who we look forward to seeing in Antalya.”
Hamesh Patel and Jayant Dua finished first in their respective categories in the individual stableford competition and therefore progress to the Grand Final in Antalya, Turkey, this November. Kshitin Saxena, meanwhile, won the nearest-the-pin prizes.
The first qualifier took place in South Africa in March and tournaments will continue to take place across the globe, including Hong Kong, Great Britain, South Korea, Japan, China, Spain, the United States, Portugal, Italy, France, Greece, Argentina, Brazil and Turkey. The overall winners of the Grand Final will play in the 2015 Turkish Airlines Open pro-am, while all finalists are to enjoy a seven-night stay in an all-inclusive hotel.
Turkish Airlines, which was recently voted Europe’s best airline for the fourth consecutive year (2014), launched the World Golf Cup in 2013, featuring 12 qualifying events. It featured 12 qualifying events and was won by China’s Han Liang. His prize for victory was partnering world number one and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods in the Turkish Airlines Open pro-am. After that initial success, there was a rapid expansion to include 50 events worldwide last year.
