The trophies were presented to the winners at the closing Gala Dinner by South African golf legend Gary Player, who could not pass up the opportunity to visit the BMW Golf Cup World Final. The 88-year-old winner of 18 majors said: “It is a great pleasure for me to be involved in the World Final. The BMW Golf Cup brings out the best in our beautiful game: ambition and high-class competition, but also respect for one another, the forging of friendships and the sharing of joyful moments. And finally, ‘Eagles for Education’ is ensuring that we don’t forget the most vulnerable – the children. Supporting them has always been especially important to me and my late wife Vivian.”


Despite his age, it is still clear to see that Player is one of the biggest and most charismatic golfers in the history of the sport. The delighted participants and their guests were able to admire him at close hand, as the ‘Black Knight’ invited them to an exclusive golf clinic.



As part of this initiative, the BMW Group had offered to donate € 1,000 to UNICEF* for each net eagle recorded during the tournament. Players carded a fantastic total of 49 eagles, supporting UNICEF with a further € 49,000 to be used on educational programmes in crisis regions.


The BMW Group and UNICEF are collaborating in the partnership ‘BRIDGE. Educating young people for tomorrow, today’, focussing on educational projects in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) in countries that have programme needs and a BMW Group presence. These include Brazil, India, Mexico and Thailand, as well as South Africa.


Within the framework of ‘BRIDGE’, the BMW Group also has the opportunity to raise funds to support UNICEF’s work in emergencies and protracted crises. The United Nation’s International Children’s Fund uses these resources to support children to develop skills to cope with trauma and to provide them with a safe environment in which to continue their learning.
