Audi Quattro Cup Winners Announced – 2019 Audi Weekender Begins Again
Audi concluded the India leg of the world’s largest amateur golf tournament series – Audi quattro Cup 2019 today. In a closely contested final held at the Prestige Golfshire Club in Bengaluru, India, Team Ahmedabad represented by Dr. Kaushal Anand and Sumit Pant garnered 47 points to beat the challenge of all other finalists from across the country. The Audi quattro Cup 2019 saw more than 750 golfers competing towards securing a slot for the India finals.
The Audi quattro Cup has clearly emerged as the crème of corporate golf events and is being celebrated nation-wide with golfers from major state capitals and towns, who compete in the series. In an otherwise evenly matched final, Team Bhubaneswar comprising of Satyajit Mishra and JB Pany bagged the runners-up spot after carding 36 points while the Team Mumbai consisting of Satish Gupta and Aditya Patel achieved third place with 34 points, beating the other teams for a podium finish.
The Finals were played on the unique ‘Greensome Stableford’ format where both players drive the ball, select the best out of two and alternate before holing out. The winning team from today’s finals has qualified for the World Finals later this year to be hosted in Kitzbühel, Austria where traditionally Audi India winners have done well in the past few years.
The Audi quattro Cup has been an annual event since 1991 and has grown into the largest amateur tournament series in golf. In more than two decades, over 1.5 million amateur golfers have taken part in the tournament. 43 countries, 645 tournaments, 80,000 players per year – the Audi quattro Cup is a tournament series of superlatives. All of the victorious teams in the national tournaments tee off in their national finals for an opportunity to win one of the coveted starting positions in the World Final.
The highlight and closing event of each season is the Audi quattro Cup World Final, hosted on many famous courses in the world before, for example: The Belfry in England, Fancourt in South Africa, K Club in Ireland, Mission Hills in China, the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, spectacular Quivira course in Cabo san Lucas, Mexico amongst others.
