THE 23rd edition of the Audi quattro Cup for amateur golfers ended on the Pacific coast on the outskirts of Los Angeles in thrilling fashion recently.
The teams from South Africa and Guatemala prevailed as the best competitors. The participants from all over the world had previously played for the opportunity to enter the world finale in 965 qualification tournaments.
Andrew Galloway and Duane Viljoen from South Africa (Group Net A) as well as Alejandro Garcia and Jose Garcia from Guatemala (Group Net B) celebrated after the two tournament days in Los Angeles.
In two rounds of 18 holes each, they won ahead of their international competitors. Last year, teams from Australia and South Africa had been successful.
"Congratulations to the winners of the 2013 Audi quattro Cup," said Florian Zitzlsperger, head of Brand Partnerships and Sports Marketing of AUDI AG.
"We're proud of the — by now — 23 great years of our tournament series. My thanks go to all the participants and partners that have been making the series a success every year through their enthusiasm and commitment." Players from about 50 nations participated in the Audi quattro Cup this year. Represented for the first time were Qatar, Kazakhstan, Macao, Pakistan and Russia.
Aside from the golf competition, participants and guests experienced a varied supporting programme at the Trump National Golf Club. It included demonstrations and a golf clinic with Justin Rose, who is currently in third place in the golf world rankings, and Trick Shot World Champion Geoff Swain, as well as a visit to the Los Angeles city centre.
Since its 1991 inaugural season, more than a million players worldwide have participated in the Audi quattro Cup. At the invitation of Audi partners, qualification tournaments as 'foursomes with selected drive' are held for six months.
The winners qualify for the relevant country finale and the best teams from the countries then meet with the international competition. The 24th season of the Audi quattro Cup will tee off in February 2014.
