The recently concluded Lexus Cup 2017 saw the ecstatic return of the Malaysian contingent – a team of four made up of winners from the Malaysian chapter of the Lexus Golf Invitational 2017 which took place in earlier August – as they brought home the championship, making name as three-time reigning champions. Golf is a sport that requires concentration, precision and technique. Lexus hosted a group of owners from various countries in Asia Pacific to Montgomerie Links golf course located in Da Nang, Vietnam, where these experienced golfers pitted against one another at the Lexus Cup 2017.
“My sincerest congratulations to team Malaysia for bringing home the Lexus Cup 2017 championship! Your refined marksmanship and skill in the game have proven that this was truly deserved. We couldn’t possibly be more proud of you for representing Lexus Malaysia and bringing home this prestigious award,” said Mr Akio Takeyama, Deputy Chairman of Lexus Malaysia.
The Malaysian team, which comprised of Mr Hoe Kim Sun, Mr Lim Beng Hor, Mr Ong Chee Chang and Mr Siah Chong Yee, ruled the show by defeating other Asia Pacific competitors, capturing the winners’ position and therefore making this Malaysia’s third consecutive team championship at the Lexus Cup.
“I never expected to win so when my name was announced, you can imagine my thrill! Prior to the tournament, I was only looking forward to enjoying the good game and the entire Lexus experience. The hospitality that we received, from exquisite dining experience to magnificent accommodation, was unprecedented and very well thought through. I’d like to earnestly thank Lexus Malaysia for the amazing trip, and I am definitely looking forward to future Lexus golf tournaments and events,” said Mr Hoe Kim Sun.
In many ways, golf, also known as a ‘gentleman’s game’, echoes the Lexus brand and all it represents. The expert technique employed in the game reflects the true craftsmanship exhibited the brand’s engineering marvels; while the elating feeling of a hole-in-one emulates the adrenaline rush felt in the driver seat of a Lexus. Embracing this connection, Lexus brings amazing experiences from on the road to on the greens for owners to truly immerse themselves.
