While Australia’s top professional golfers have spent the past fortnight competing in the nation’s two premier golf events, Australia’s leading club golfers teed it up in the final of the world’s largest amateur golf competition – the Genesis Golf Link Cup.
From almost 102,000 entrants throughout 2017, 16 finalists across A, B and C grade and ladies made it to the 2017 Genesis Golf Link Cup National Final.
This year’s finale was not only a showcase of Australia’s best performing amateur club golfers, but one of the nation’s premier courses – the stunning New South Wales Golf Club in Sydney.
A brand-new Genesis G80 Sport framed the back of the first tee, alongside the Genesis Golf Link Cup trophy – the silverware leaving golfers in no doubt as to what was on the line.
As golfers readied themselves, some posed with the trophy while others had a final tune-up on New South Wales’ practice facilities which are among Australia’s finest.
Golfers tested their mettle under 18 holes of stableford on the La Perouse layout, savouring a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience some of the nation’s most spectacular golf holes.
At New South Wales’ par-3 17th, each finalist had the chance to score a hole-in-one and drive away in a brand-new Genesis G80 Sport.
Despite their best efforts, nobody was able to win the Genesis.
As the day progressed, B-grader Scott Shaw from Keysborough Golf Club in Melbourne emerged as the clear Genesis Golf Link Cup winner with 39 points including a resurgent 23 points on the back nine.
“Our sponsors, particularly Genesis, thank you very much for putting this on, it wouldn’t happen without you, what an excellent few days,” Scott said after his victory.
The following day, all finalists were treated to a VIP experience at the Emirates Australian Open – taking in the Third Round action from the Genesis marquee beside the 18th green at host venue The Australian Golf Club.
From there, the finalists travelled to the Intercontinental Hotel in Double Bay for the Genesis Golf Link Cup Presentation Dinner where Scott was officially presented with the Genesis Golf Link Cup trophy.
Genesis Motors Australia General Manager Peter Evans congratulated Scott and all the finalists for their outstanding performance throughout 2017 and praised the Genesis Golf Link Cup which has grown to become the world’s largest amateur golf competition.
“We look forward to our ongoing association with the Genesis Golf Link Cup and trying to increase numbers even further and make sure everybody has a great time competing in 2018 and beyond,” said Peter.
