Moments like these are the essence of the Audi quattro Cup. It’s a perfect cocktail of skill and competition, with just the right amount of humour and lightheartedness. It is the largest amateur golf tournament series in the world, involving more than 100,000 players from 51 countries in over 800 regional tournaments.
Last October’s final was held in Barcelona, with 55 teams of two competing, all invited along for a luxury five-day trip courtesy of Audi. Two teams were flying the flag for Great Britain: Phil Jones and David Morris, both from Herefordshire, plus Matt Hurren and Michael Pickett from Surrey and Essex respectively.
