The Mercedes Trophy grand finale, after 27-day of intense golf activities spread across 11 cities, will be held at Oxford Golf' Country Club, Pune on Friday.
The National Finals will throw up three national winners from among the 41 winners of the 11 regional legs. They would get the opportunity to compete at the Mercedes Trophy World Finals in Stuttgart, Germany, in October 2019.
The National Final will be 18-hole modified Stableford competition against 3/4th handicap in three different handicap categories.
The 25-year-old event, organised in 60 countries, is one of the world's most prestigious amateur golf tournaments.
The qualifiers that began in Pune in January, travelled to 11 locations in India before its conclusion in Lucknow in March.
The MercedesTrophy is in its 19th Edition. This time around they are adopting the R&A’s ‘Ready Golf’ initiative at this year’s MercedesTrophy. ‘Ready Golf’ is a commonly used term which indicates that players should play when they are ready to do so, rather than adhering strictly to the ‘farthest from the hole plays first’ stipulation in the Rules of Golf.
