With a rich heritage, a culture of technical innovation, and the relentless pursuit of the perfect drive, Mercedes-Benz and the game of golf have much in common. Indeed, Mercedes-Benz is proud of its long-standing involvement not just in the sport of golf but in the game’s legendary tournaments, including the Masters, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship. Each year these events produce incredible displays of power, precision and control – qualities close to the heart of Mercedes-Benz and are also reflected in the outstanding performance of Mercedes-Benz golf brand ambassadors such as Martin Kaymer, Louis Oosthuizen and Bernhard Langer.
Mercedes-Benz also supports a multiplicity of amateur and professional tournaments at the national level, among them the Dubai Desert Classic, the Alfred Dunhill Links, the Northern Trust Open and the Talisker Australian Masters. Impacting on the amateur game is The Mercedes Trophy, a tournament in its 22nd year, which attracts 60,000 amateur golfers from over 60 countries annually.
