Volvo World Golf Challenge to Climax in Shanghai
The Volvo World Golf Challenge runs throughout the year all over the globe and is Volvo’s hugely popular tournament for its customers. At its conclusion, the national winners are invited to compete in the World Final. This year, it is taking place in conjunction with the Volvo China Open for the very first time.
Dating back to 1988, the Volvo World Golf Challenge has grown to become one of the most popular and sought-after events for amateur golfers anywhere. As it continues to attract new and different markets, each of which tailors its own tournaments to suit its customers and business climate, 2014 saw Volvo representatives spending quality time with more than 70,000 customers in over 40 countries.
Now, as it approaches its exciting climax, 71 qualifiers from all over the globe have arrived here in Shanghai to compete in the World Final which will be played on the very same course as the Volvo China Open on Tuesday and Wednesday. To set the scene, they are spending the Sunday at the beautiful Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club as guests of Volvo, enjoying the hospitality and watching some of the best golfers in the world in action. They will get to see how the experts tackle the course as they watch the 21st Volvo China Open come to its own thrilling conclusion.
On Monday, they will have the chance to practise and make their final preparations here before playing two rounds, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday, to determine who will be the new world champion.
For all 71 golfers here this week, they will feel as though they are playing in their very own major, the biggest event of their lives. And on Wednesday afternoon, the celebrations will begin as the new Volvo World Golf Challenge champion is crowned.
