Not one but two hole-in-one prizes were awaiting the dream shot at the 2024 World Final in which a strong field containing nine players with a handicap of 0 or better was competing. A Macan 4 Electric was at stake on both the 17th hole at the Club de Golf Alcanada and on the fifth in Son Gual Golf. An ace however failed to materialise during the days in Mallorca. Team Belgium’s Yves Renkin came closest to a hole-in-one in Son Gual when hitting the pin. The hole-in-one prize donated by the tournament partner TAG Heuer, a TAG Heuer Connected Watch Calibre E4 Golf Edition, also went unclaimed. Switzerland’s victorious team can however look forward to a special prize. As winners of the World Trophy, the four members will be off to the 2025 Porsche Singapore Classic to watch the action live in the Asian metropolis. They will also take part in the Pro-Am tournament. In the new Team Challenge rewarding the commitment of the participants prior to and during the World Final with points in the Porsche Golf Circle app, it was Team New Zealand that eventually came out on top. The four team members each received a TAG Heuer Connected Watch Caliber E4 Golf Edition as a prize.

Porsche in golf

Porsche has been involved in golf since 1988 through the Porsche Golf Cup. The tournament series is one of the company’s most successful customer events and has developed into an international event in which, at its peak, over 17,000 Porsche customers took part in 261 worldwide qualifying tournaments. After becoming involved in professional golf for the first time in 2015 as the title sponsor of the DP World Tour’s prestigious Porsche European Open, Porsche was then instrumental in establishing the tournament as a top golf event in Germany. Now supporting the European Open near Hamburg as the Official Automotive Partner since 2024, Porsche is thus continuing the long-time successful cooperation with the time-honoured DP World Tour golf event. As the new title sponsor of the Porsche Singapore Classic, the sports car manufacturer is internationalising its commitment to professional golf in the important Asian market. Car partnerships at US PGA Tour and DP World Tour tournaments, including the European Open and the Omega European Masters in Crans Montana as well as in women’s golf – the Amundi Evian Championship – round off its involvement in professional golf.  Launched in 2017, the Porsche Golf Circle is also highly successful. The international community for keen golf-playing Porsche customers gives its members the opportunity to enjoy exclusive golfing experiences at unique locations and at professional tournaments. Paul Casey has been complementing the Porsche family since 2020 as the first Brand Ambassador from the game of golf.
