Hublot ve İsviçreli satış noktası Rob Engstorm güçlerini birleştirerek Ullna Golf Klübü’nde harika bir turnuva düzenledi. 9 kez Avrupa turnuvası kazanan ve Hublot’nun ‘Marka Dostu’ (Friend of the Brand) olan Alex Noren bu özel turnuvaya ev sahipliği yaptı.
Ullna, Sweden, 5th June – Yesterday at Ullna Golf Club, Hublot and its Swedish retailer Rob Engstrom joined forces for a great moment of sport. In presence of Alex Noren; Hublot Friend of the Brand and nine-time European Tour Winner, Hublot hosted a special golf tournament. Ullna Golf Club welcomed 36 players who could compare their swing with that of the Swedish Golf Champion.
Located on the shores of Ullna Lake, the Ullna Golf Club opened in 1981. Renowned since then for its outstanding quality, natural setting and its proximity to open waters, its golf course reopened in 2013 after a 2-year renovation by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, offering the perfect balance between soft shaped hills and ever-present streams, with brand new tees, fairways and greens.
The perfect setting for Hublot and Rob Engstrom to host their golf tournament! Happy few and VIPs enjoyed exclusive time with Alex Noren, current World #17. Waiting for the participants at Hole #16 – known as the most difficult par-3 at Ullna GC – Alex Noren advised them on their game and demonstrated some of his best shots. To close such a privileged moment, a cocktail was held at the Club House Terrace surrounded by Ferrari cars, during which the best players were awarded Hublot prizes.
Born in Stockholm, Alex Noren turned professional in 2005. Since he came back to competition in 2015, Noren has enjoyed a startling upward trajectory. Clinching six European Tour victories between 2016 and 2017, he climbed as high as #8 in the Official World Golf Rankings, ensuring his attendance at the sport’s biggest tournaments in 2017 – an opportunity he grasped with both hands with top 10 finishes in The Open, The Players Championship and the WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay. Welcomed last January in the Hublot Family, Alex Noren kicked off the 2018 year by producing remarkable performances at the Farmers Insurance Open on Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California and at WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin, Texas. Noren’s hard work continues to elevate him and cement his place inside the world’s golf elite.
“I am glad to participate in this very special tournament, here in my home course. Having long been an admirer of the Swiss watchmaker products, it is fantastic to officially be welcomed into their family alongside great champions like Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Patrick Reed and Alexander Lévy with whom I share the same passion, commitment and ambition.”
