It’s always exciting to track the progress of our three golf ambassadors, but 2012 has been a particularly incredible year.
It started with Louis Oosthuizen winning the first European Tour event of the year, the Africa Open, in January. What better way to start? He then came within an inch, literally, of winning the Masters, losing in a playoff to Bubba Watson. He did provide one of the tournament’s most spectacular moments ever with his famous double-eagle at the 2nd hole. Just one short week later, Louis recorded his second victory of the season by winning the Maybank Malaysian Open.
Lee Westwood has had another great year, cementing his position as one of the best players in the world and we continue to be proud of his achievements. He won in Sweden and Indonesia this year to go with more strong Major performances; we all know that first Major win is just around the corner! He’s even moving to the United States and changing his coach in an effort to help capture his ultimate goal.
My personal highlight was Jeev Milkha Singh winning the Scottish Open. Jeev has had a tough couple of years with injury and I was so pleased for him to win such a big tournament. He always represents UPS with class and interacts with our customers expertly.
This week, Jeev and Louis are flying the UPS flag at the Barclays Singapore Open. We wish them both luck! Check out this video to relive Jeev’s Scottish Open win and hear what he thought of it.
