Playing with the Pros
THE ULTIMATE PRIZE FOR ANY CLUB GOLFER
In no sport other than golf would it be possible to introduce such an innovative idea as having amateurs compete in a professional event. We came up with the idea in 2010 and thanks to our heritage in golf and the fact that Volvo is widely seen as a pioneer in the sport, the European Tour agreed to give it a try. It instantly became a success - both in the eyes of the professionals and the amatuers.
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
The top finishers from the World Final, ususally around 18 players, get to play alongside stars of the European Tour during their second round of the Volvo Golf Champions, live on television, in front of a worldwide audience of millions. Each world finalist joins a pair of the professional's individual stroke play competition. The best two scores on each hole are added up. The two professionals in the winning team each win a brand new Volvo car. And for the amateurs, the entire day is a golfing dream come true.
