Countdown to the World Final
Next week the World Final of the Volvo World Golf Challenge will kick off in the city centre of Shanghai. 71 players from more than 30 countries have made it all the way, from local and national events, to the World Final.
Starting off with a total ‘field’ of about 70,000 players all over the world, all playing in qualifying events hosted by Volvo dealers and in local markets, 71 players now remain – eager to compete for the World Champion crown. In Shanghai – ‘the pearl of the East’ – the World Final will be contested over the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, straight after the conclusion of the 21st staging of the Volvo China Open. According to Project Director Staffan Jonson who is on site, “All the preparations are under way and we look forward to welcoming all the contestants and their hosts. They can look forward to a very exciting week, full of activities.” The world finalists will be arriving in Shanghai on the 25th of April, and having enjoyed watching the final round of the Volvo China Open, it will then be time to test the course during practice day on the 27th. The World Final is then played on the 28th and 29th of April.
