High-voltage action on the cards at the 17th Business Today-Honda Pro Am of Champions to be held in Delhi from March 3rd 2012

NEW DELHI, March 2, 2012 – An exciting match up is in store as 10 of India’s leading professional women golfers along with 10 lady professionals from abroad tee off at the Jack Nicklaus designed Classic Golf Resort on the weekend of March 3-4. The occasion: the grand finale of the 17th edition of the Business Today-Honda Pro-Am of Champions.

In a move aimed at the development and growth of women’s golf in India, the Business Today-Honda Pro-Am of Champions entered into a tie-up with the Women’s Golf Association of India (WGAI) last year after supporting the cause of men’s professional golf for 15 seasons in what was a much-awaited event in both the corporate and professional calendar in the country.

Speaking on the occasion, Anil Mehra, Managing Director, India Today Group, said, “In 1996, Business Today created history by bringing together top Indian amateur, professional, and corporate golfers into a unique standalone Pro-am golf event. A tournament rich in history, it has seen the best of the best participate in the past, in their quest for victory. No wonder, some of the biggest names in Indian professional golf have been a part of this prestigious event.”

“Last year, Business Today and Honda registered another first – to support Indian women golfers and offer them a platform to compete with their international counterparts – together with India’s business leaders as part of this unique event. The intent is to contribute to the development of golf in India and create champion women golfers, who will take Indian golf to greater heights in future,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Jnaneswar Sen, Sr. VP, Sales & Marketing, Honda Siel Cars India Ltd said, "It gives us immense pleasure to be associated with one of the most premium Golf tournaments in the country. Business Today Honda Pro-Am of Champions is a great opportunity for Honda as it gives corporate leaders and Indian Professional golfers, who form an important segment of our target audience, an opportunity to experience our premium offerings − the Honda Accord and the Honda CR-V. Honda cars are famous for their advanced technology and performance, qualities truly embodied in golf which stands for accuracy and technique."

The exclusive field will see a heady mixture of top notch CEOs from across the country and is sponsored by Honda SIEL Cars India, one of India’s leading car manufacturers, in association with Franklin Templeton and ITC Hotels.

Smriti Mehra, the best known Indian in professional women golf and the only Indian to have played in the lucrative US LGPA, won her third title in the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour in Kolkata last week. She leads a terrific line-up of Indian professionals that also includes second-ranked Nalini Singh, No. 3 Sharmila Nicollet, No. 4 Neha Tripathi, and No. 5 Saaniya Sharma among others.
