BMW Golf Cup International Announces Winners

After the three rounds held at the Fancourt Resort in George, South Africa, the 2010 BMW Golf Cup International World Final ended last Friday, just 97 days before the football World Cup kicks off in the same country. WInners were Mai Hayashi (Ladies), Abdul Rani Bin Abdul Malek from Malaysia (Men’s A) and Hannes Dietl (Men’s B), while the national competition was won by Malaysia.

“To experience a legend like Gary Player was a wonderful way to round things off,” Magnus Wiese, head of BMW Golfsport Marketing, said in a release.

“The participants have enjoyed an extraordinarily atmospheric final, the rich African culture and, not least, a wonderful golf resort. Our thanks go to the World Finalists. Their impressive performances and the sporting way in which they conducted themselves on the course have contributed significantly to the time at the Fancourt Resort being such an impressive experience.”

There were 99 finalists from 34 countries taking part at the event. The World Final was played on the “Montagu” and “Outeniqua” courses, which were both designed by Gary Player. The 74-year-old visited the World Final and also gave a demonstration of skills, showing why he is considered to be one of the best golf players in the world.

“Although only one name can ever end the tournament at the top of the leaderboard, everyone is a winner at the World Final,” added Wiese. “People come together from so many different countries and cultures to enjoy an unforgettable experience together and return home with new friendships that will last well beyond the World Final. That is worth more than any trophy.”
