Audi ends golfing season with quattro Cup world finale

  • Amateur golfers from 43 countries chose their winners in Mexico

  • Victors come from the United Kingdom and Australia

  • Successful tournament series enthralls 80,000 participants

Ingolstadt - The winners of the world’s most popular tournament series for amateur golfers have been determined: Mike Williams and Edward Greenhalgh from the United Kingdom (Group A, team handicap 0 to 18) as well as Matthew Boyle and David Harris from Australia (Group B, team handicap 19 to 36) won the finale of the Audi quattro Cup that was staged in Los Cabos (Mexico) this time. 106 participants from 43 countries – including eight German golfers – had qualified for the showdown in North America. The world finale traditionally concluces the worldwide qualification tournaments in which more than 80,000 golfers play at the invitation of regional Audi partners.

The Audi quattro Cup has been played for as many as 17 years now. It is one of the main pillars of Audi’s golfing commitment that will be continued in the 2008 season on a larger scale than ever. The counterpart to the well-established quattro Cup for the ladies is the Audi Ladies Cup, which has been staged since 1995.

In the professional arena Audi will be pursuing new paths in the 2008 season. Together with Bayerische Hypo- und Vereinsbank AG, Audi will position a high-calibre professional golf tournament for ladies for the first time: in May 2008 the event that will bear the name of “HypoVereinsbank Ladies German Open presented by Audi” will celebrate its début.

The golfing commitment will be complemented by a co-sponsorship in the Irish Open where Audi will be supplying the “Official Car of the Irish Open” again for the next two years as well supplying vehicles for the shuttle services for players and officials. As a partner of the Omega European Masters in Switzerland Audi provides shuttle services as well.
