    Gary Player, often referred to as the Black Knight, symbolizes all that world class golf is or was ever intended to be. A champion in every sense of the word, he has won 165 professional tournaments worldwide and through the philanthropic efforts of his foundation generated over $50 million dollars for the education of underprivileged children. Player, a master of the game, and a world leader in golf course design is credited with shaping more than 325 courses worldwide.

    When Gary Player won the US Open in 1965 at age 29, he became only the third golfer to win the Grand Slam, following Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen. Since then, only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have added their names to this elite group. Player has, to date, won nine major championships on the regular PGA Tour and nine on the Senior or Champions Tour. He is a three time President’s Cup Captain and in 2000 received South Africa’s Sportsman of the Century Award.

    In addition to his 40 years of golf course design, Player currently serves as the Global Ambassador to the World Golf Hall of Fame and holds an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from St. Andrews University. His legendary career and humanitarian endeavors have been acknowledged by numerous awards, including the 2012 PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2006 PGA Tour Payne Stewart Award, and the 2003 Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Player has circled the globe in pursuit of sporting events, and after journeying over 15 million miles, or 25 million kilometers, he is widely recognized as The World’s Most Traveled Athlete™.  When not traveling to or from sporting events, Player divides his time between the South African stud farm, where he has bred over 2000 winning thoroughbred race horses, and his residence on Jupiter Island in Hobe Sound, Florida.

    2015 Marks 10th Anniversary Of Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship

    image

    Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship Tees up 10th Anniversary Event
    Leading European Tour Event to Celebrate Milestone from January 15-18, 2015

    New York, NY (June 18, 2014) – Organizers of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year, have announced the award-winning event will run from January 15-18, 2015 at Abu Dhabi Golf Club.

    Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) and Championship title sponsor HSBC have confirmed preparations are in full swing ahead of the milestone, which will reflect the event’s remarkable growth over the past decade.

    Teeing off in 2006 under the former Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (now TCA Abu Dhabi), the Championship is recognized as one of the leading events on the European Tour. It has welcomed some of golf’s biggest names over the years including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Martin Kaymer and Phil Mickelson.

    Last year the event attracted more than 63,000 fans and was broadcast to a global TV audience of more than 436 million people.

    “The Championship has enjoyed rapid growth since launching and we are very much looking forward to celebrating its success over the past 10 years and recognizing what has now become one of the Gulf’s most-loved sporting events,” said Faisal Al Sheikh, Director, Events Bureau, TCA Abu Dhabi. “We are deeply gratified by the reputation the Championship holds with the players who enjoy coming to Abu Dhabi and our valued sponsors and partners who have helped us to grow this event into what it is today. We have some exciting plans underway to recognize the 10-year milestone and look forward to welcoming everyone to help us celebrate this special occasion.”

    Since its inception, the Championship has teed off every January at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, evolving to become the jewel in the desert that forms part of the Tour’s ‘Gulf Swing’. Each year, the event welcomes one of the European Tour’s leading player fields who vie for the iconic Falcon Trophy and a cut of the $2.7million prize purse – the richest in the region.

    Global bank HSBC joined as title sponsor of the Championship in 2010 and has played a key role in driving the event forward. Working in partnership with TCA Abu Dhabi to attract the game’s greatest players to the emirate, the bank has also helped to further enhance the Championship Village into one of the best off-course entertainment venues of any regional sporting event.

    HSBC Global Head of Sponsorship and Events Giles Morgan said: “HSBC’s ambition is to open up the world of golf. That is exactly why we are involved in golf and in this tournament. I believe we are fulfilling our ambition in Abu Dhabi and by working closely with our partners this Championship has evolved into an unmissable event which appeals to absolutely everyone. The Championship brings together all the ingredients’ required to excite and attract families, avid golfers and those completely new to the game. The result is the perfect mix of the world’s best players competing in a great tournament on a stunning course alongside a host of family-friendly activities and entertainment. It’s a winning formula and one we are continuing to build upon as we look to celebrate the landmark achievement of the 10th anniversary tournament and five years of HSBC sponsorship.”

    The Championship was initially created to further enhance Abu Dhabi’s profile as an international golf tourism destination, and showcase the world-class offering of the one-stop Golf in Abu Dhabi booking and packaging initiative. With three championship-standard courses within a 20-minute drive of the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi’s golf tourism offering has seen growth year-on-year.

    Overseas rounds increased by a massive 50 percent in 2012-2013, with total rounds also increasing by 15 percent during the same time. The first quarter of this year has continued the trend, with overseas rounds up by a further 19 percent.

    Golf in Abu Dhabi has created tailored packages to suit all types of players and itineraries, including packages for the 2015 Championship. Championship packages include five nights’ accommodation in one of Abu Dhabi’s leading hotels, two rounds of golf on Abu Dhabi’s Championship courses, season passes to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, as well as an array of stunning tourism attractions. To top this off, all visitors who book packages will enjoy a complimentary clinic with a world top 30 player. Visit http://www.golfinabudhabi.com for additional details concerning Championship package.

    Earlier this year, the Championship was also billed, for the second year running, as the region’s best professional sporting event at the Middle East Sports Industry Awards (SPIA).

    10 YEARS OF THE CHAMPIONSHIP

  • The Championship is renowned for throwing up tough and exciting challenges for the world’s best – from Henrik Stenson setting a new Asian long drive record from the wing of an Etihad Airways A330; to Luke Donald taking on the ‘world’s biggest bunker’ in the Liwa Desert.
  • In 10 years, the Championship has grown exponentially, from welcoming 22,000 visitors in 2006, to over 63,000 visitors in 2014.
  • Across 10 years of the Championship, there have been nine holes-in-one – more than half of which occurred on the National Course’s par 3 Hole 12.
  • Martin Kaymer made himself a firm fixture in the Championship’s history books, becoming the youngest, and only wire-to-wire winner at 23 years and 24 days in 2008, and scoring the largest winning margin (eight shots) and lowest 72 hole score (-24) in 2011.
  • In its 10 year history, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship has welcomed six current and former number ones including Ernie Els, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
  • Since HSBC came on board as the Championship’s title sponsor, the Championship Village has become the centerpiece of the action, proven in 2013, when fans watched Rory McIlroy unexpectedly take on former British number one tennis star Tim Henman on the mini court.
  • The highest ranked player to win the Championship was Martin Kaymer in 2011, who consequentially displaced Tiger Woods as number two in the world rankings, shortly before going on to become world number one.
  • Numerous changes have been made to the National Course over the past 10 years to increase the degree of difficulty and provide a searching but fair test for the world’s leading players, including 12 new tees and 23 new bunkers.
  • The Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship has won the accolade of Best Professional Sporting Event at the Middle East Sports Industry Awards every year since they were established.
  • Over the past 10 years, 14 Major winners have descended on Abu Dhabi Golf Club’s National Course with hopes of Championship glory, however only the newly crowned US Open Champion, Martin Kaymer, has achieved it.

    Billy Casper Golf Unveils Grand Prizes for Fourth Annual World’s Largest Golf Outing

    Billy Casper Golf Unveils Trips to Nike Campus, Pinehurst Resort as
    Grand Prizes for Fourth Annual ‘World’s Largest Golf Outing’

    (VIENNA, VA) – Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – the largest owner-operator of golf courses, country clubs and resorts in the U.S. – has unveiled the grand prizes for the fourth annual World’s Largest Golf Outing on Monday, August 11 to benefit Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

    All players are eligible to win a trip for four to the Nike Campus in Beaverton, OR, for custom club-fitting and other merchandise.  The team that raises the most money for WWP will win a trip for four to Pinehurst Resort (NC), site of last month’s men’s and women’s U.S. Open Championships, to play the famous No. 2 golf course and stay at the iconic Carolina Hotel.

    The winning team from each participating course – anticipated to be more than 120 in 28 states – will be entered into a drawing for tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship.  Other prizes include equipment and apparel from leading golf brands.

    “The World’s Largest Golf Outing continues to raise the bar in giving back to our country’s heroes,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. “The generosity of Billy Casper Golf’s industry partners and golfers at large is humbling.”

    More information and to register: http://www.worldslargestgolfouting.com.

    More engagement: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (#WLGO14).  Golfers are encouraged to Tweet @wlgo_bcg and @BillyCasperGolf using #WLGO14 with photos and updates during or after the day.

    World’s Largest Golf Outing is a simultaneous golf event played at more than 120 BCG-managed courses in 28 states and is open to all golfers regardless of ability.  A USGA handicap is not required.

    Golfer check-in, shotgun start and entry fee – which includes a $10 per player donation to WWP, round of golf, cart rental, range balls (where applicable), lunch, awards reception, on-course contests – vary by course.

    Part of event proceeds and all donations from non-players benefit WWP, the national organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors – some of whom will be playing in the World’s Largest Golf Outing. Teams are encouraged to raise additional funds to support the worthy cause; donations to WWP unrelated to event participation are made at http://www.worldslargestgolfouting.com.

    Last year, BCG hosted more than 10,000 golfers, including 70 wounded warriors, at 110 of its courses in 28 states and raised $735,000 for WWP, topping the 2012 event that totaled 7,800 golfers and $400,000 to WWP.

    Since its inception four years ago, the World’s Largest Golf Outing has donated more than $1.1 million to WWP, the largest amount ever via a single-day golf event.  BCG forecasts another record-breaking charity donation this year.

    In furtherance of its charitable mission, the Foundation both supports existing organizations and administers programs of its own that enhance the physical, spiritual and social development of children, young adults and those associated with the U.S. Military.
