Singapore: The Singapore Golf Association (SGA) and Lexus have extended their partnership for an additional three years.

Since the inception of the partnership in 2021, Lexus and the SGA have collaborated on various initiatives to promote and enhance golf in Singapore. The partnership has encompassed multiple golf events, community engagement programmes, and the sponsorship of promising young golfers.

As part of the three-year partnership, Lexus will continue to host an exclusive series of golf events for its customers and golf enthusiasts, providing an opportunity to experience the game on some of Singapore’s finest courses.

Through the partnership, Lexus will continue to support the SGA in its efforts to identify and groom young talent in Singapore. This includes funding for training programmes and scholarships for promising junior golfers.

In the meantime, Lexus will actively engage with the golfing community by organising golf clinics, workshops, and other events aimed at promoting the sport and enhancing the skills of both amateur and professional golfers.

Ng Khee Siong, Interim Managing Director at Inchcape Singapore, said: “We are delighted to continue our collaboration with the Singapore Golf Association. Golf aligns with Lexus’ core values of precision, performance, and a commitment to excellence.

“We look forward to further promoting the sport in Singapore, supporting the development of local talent and engaging with golf enthusiasts in our community.”

Tan Chong Huat, President of the SGA, an Associate Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, added: “The partnership with Lexus has been instrumental in the growth of golf in Singapore. We are pleased to extend our collaboration and appreciate Lexus’ unwavering support for our association and the golfing community. Together, we will continue to make a significant impact on the sport of golf in Singapore.”

Among the SGA squad members who have benefited from the partnership with Lexus are James Leow, who ended Singapore’s 30-year wait for an individual gold medal in golf at the 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, and Aloysa Atienza, who became the first Singaporean women in more than 30 years to clinch the individual silver medal at the 2022 SEA Games in Hanoi.

Leow enjoyed a stellar year in 2022 when he won the Thunderbird Collegiate and the Pacific Coast Amateur titles in the United States and represented the Team International side that beat the United States at the prestigious Palmer Cup in that same year.

The 26-year-old also clinched both team and individual silver medals at the Nomura Cup- leading Singapore to its best-ever result at the event.

Atienza, meanwhile, is training and competing in the United States where she is seeking to make her breakthrough on the LPGA.
