New Delhi, Mar 6 (UNI) Leading professionals,including the top five on the current PGTI Order of Merit- Lam Chih Bing, Digvijay Singh, Rahul Ganapathy, Mukesh Kumar and Shamim Khan-will be seen in action in the Rs 12 lakh prize money Grand Finale of the Business Today-Honda Pro-Am of Champions to be held at Classic Golf Resort, Gurgoan on Saturday.
The prestigious event, now in its 13th year, is the only stand-alone Pro-Am on the Indian professional golf circuit and undoubtedly the most-looked-forward-to event on the corporate calendar.
In all 22 professionals will be vying for honours. Defending champion Ashok Kumar will be looking to retaining his title. For the first time ever, a lady professional - Shalini Malik who played the Ladies Masters in December last year - will also be seen in action.
The four-venue event teed off in Bangalore and covered Kolkata and Mumbai before reaching for its final stop- Delhi. The respective winners from each City will also be seen in action in the Grand Finale.
With a total prize money of Rs. 12 lacs for the event, it will be a great opportunity for one of the 22 Pros to walk away with a maximum of Rs 330,000 just for making the effort of playing 36 holes.
While the professionals will be playing for prize money, some gala prizes await the amateurs with the winning team (three amateurs) getting an all expense paid trip for a couple to South Africa.
