Singapore: Perseverance paid off for Henry Lim Eng Lee and Seng Tick Yang at the Audi quattro Cup 2018 Singapore.
Four years after being defeated in a sudden-death play-off in the tournament, the duo drew on all their experience to take top prize at Sentosa Golf Club.
Lim and Seng will now go on to represent Singapore against teams from 47 countries at the Audi quattro Cup World Final in Kitzbühel, Austria from September 23-27.
Lim said: “This is my 10th year playing in the Audi quattro Cup and I’m glad that we finally managed to bring home the win. We’ll do our best for a repeat performance in Austria, where we will be up against all the other winners at the World Finals. Thank you Audi for organising another great game!”
Seng added: “The event was very well planned and I had such a great day on the course. It’s not just about winning, but also about meeting new people and bonding over a great game.”
The 11th edition of the Singapore qualifier played host to more than 70 two-man teams with Audi owners bringing their A-game to the New Tanjong Course at Sentosa, a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Singaporean pro-golfer Quincy Quek, an Audi ambassador, said: “There was so much talent and sportsmanship at this year’s Audi quattro Cup. Good food, great company and healthy competition is key for an awesome day.”
Competitors were given a special preview of the all-new Audi A8 L, ahead of its official launch scheduled in the coming months.
In addition to vying for the coveted spot at the World Final, players were also aiming to drive home in one of the three hole-in-one cars. The latest members of the Audi Sport range, the RS 3 Sedan, RS 4 Avant and RS 5 Coupé make up the hottest line-up of cars ever offered at Audi quattro Cup in Singapore.
