Singapore: Asian Golf Industry Federation Golf Facility Member Sentosa Golf Club has been the scene of many memorable finishes to tournaments. The latest to add to that long list took place in the 2015 Audi quattro Cup.
In a dramatic, sudden-death play-off under the lights on the 18th hole of the Tanjong Course, the pairing of Ng Chiang Ling and Atsushi Yoshimura prevailed at the third extra hole.
Their reward is a place at the Audi quattro Cup World Final in Los Cabos, Mexico from 29 November 29 to December 3 where they will represent Singapore.
“I really enjoyed the competition. It was a pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful event, and great to see so much support for the sport,” said Yoshimura. “Right now, I’m going to celebrate and then it is back to practicing for the finals in November.”
Ng added: “I feel proud to be flying the Singapore flag, and we’ll be sure to do our best in Mexico. A big thanks to Audi Singapore for putting on such a well organised day.”
Ng and Yoshimura topped the standings on the Tanjong Course with 46 Stableford points. They then faced off with David Gartrell and Colin Clark, who amassed 45 points to lead the way on the Serapong Course.
The Audi quattro Cup, celebrating its Silver Jubilee this season, has become one of the best-known amateur tournaments around the world, bringing together more than 100,000 players from 53 countries. More than 1.4 million golfers have taken part over the last 25 years.
“I would like to thank all the participants and to extend my congratulations to Chiang Ling and Atsushi on their great win,” said Jeff Mannering, Managing Director, Audi Singapore. “Audi prides itself on championing cutting edge sportsmanship camaraderie, and we hope to put Singapore on the map in Mexico later this year. I wish the two winners the best of luck as they play in the World Finals.”
