Mercedes-Benz (Thailand) Limited unveiled six representatives of Thailand in the 19th “MercedesTrophy 2018” golf tournaments for amateurs under “The Best Never Stops” concept.
The representatives will compete against more than 1,100 contestants at the Asian Final in Australia on August 5th for the opportunity to sail through to the World Final in Stuttgart, Germany.
Mr. Frank Steinacher, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Mercedes-Benz (Thailand) Limited, said “Mercedes-Benz continually offers ‘THE BEST’ to customers today and tomorrow. Guided by our commitment to offer the best experience, we have long held a variety of activities to strengthen our ties with customers and dealers. Today, golf is a prominent sport in Thailand. It has attracted widespread interest and reached out to people of all ages. MercedesTrophy therefore proves a much-awaited event among our customers. Since its launch in 1999, MercedesTrophy has already attracted and given an opportunity to win a greenlight for a world-class golf tournament to more than 20,000 golf enthusiasts from across Thailand.”
“The esteemed image of golf truly resonates well with Mercedes-Benz’s brand image and at the same time reflects our Emotion and Intelligence philosophy. Recognizing the value of golf, we have arranged MercedesTrophy for the purposes of strengthening relationships with all relevant parties and of attracting new customers to our Mercedes-Benz Family,” Mr. Steinacher added.
The Country Final round of the 19th “MercedesTrophy 2018” took place at Alpine Golf and Sports Club on May 21st under “The Best Never Stops” concept. The highest scorer from each division secures the chance of representing Thailand in the Asian Final in Australia whereby their performance will determine the opportunity to get into the World Final in Stuttgart, Germany. This prestigious event is jointly supported by famous brands: TaylorMade – Adidas Golf, Qatar Airways, Autozkin, Singha, Shiseido, Bangkok Hospital Pattaya, and Tyreplus. Mercedes-Benz Thailand has already selected the six Thai golfers, male and female, as Thailand’s representatives for the Asian Final, namely Ms. Nanthanij Chanprem, Mr. Niwut Poolsri, Mr. Rattapol Sangmanee, Mr. Thammarak Aphiromrak, Mr. Kitti Sittipravet, and Mr. Prakran Sappadungchon.
“All the six winners of the Country Final win not only the right to compete in the Asian Final in Australia but also many other prizes from MercedesTrophy sponsors namely a trophy, golfing equipment, a return business-class air ticket, food, and accommodation for their trip to the overseas competition, and 3 days of a complementary full round of golf on both practice and competition days. They will also receive an opportunity to join the Training Camp, held on July 25th and 26th, which will take place at Siam Country Club Waterside. They, moreover, will get an access to Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience at Australia. All representatives will be exclusively supported during their overseas stay as Mercedes-Benz Thailand’s special guests. Unfortunately, though, no one could score our prestigious Hole-In-One prize, a Mercedes-Benz E 350 e Avantgarde, a Plug-in HYBRID car from our EQ – Electric Intelligence by Mercedes-Benz category, this year,” Mr. Steinacher concluded.
