The 7th Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup came to New York on June 12, 2019, and is the world’s biggest corporate golf tournament.

The airline prides itself on the quality of its products and services, from the freshest seasonal ingredients used in onboard catering, to the Stopover Service in Istanbul and bonuses like free transport of sports equipment including golf clubs.

Now in its seventh year, the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup continues to deliver the highest quality as players, all invited by the airline, will once again play at some of the finest courses in the world.

The event at Inwood Country Club was one of 103 tournaments in this year’s record-breaking Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup – with the victors competing in the Grand Finals in Turkey later this year.

From a global total of 103, those that win will go through to the Grand Finals and have the chance to play in the Turkish Airlines Open Pro-Am where previously winners have teedup alongside the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

Ben Kunofski won the competition with 68 net, going on to represent New York in the Grand Finals. Greg Bel was runner-up, and Chris Dunham was third.

The Nearest the Pin competition was won by James Griffin for the men. Greg Bel won the lowest gross score with 72.

“We warmly thank all of our guests who made the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup here in New York a huge success,” said Cenk Okal, General Manager for Turkish Airlines New York. “Once again, it was a thrilling tournament in the TAWGC series, congratulations to our winner, Ben Kunofski. We wish him the best of luck in Turkey.”

All Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup finalists will fly to Turkey in the luxury of Turkish Airlines’ Business Class. Events such as the Turkish Airlines Open and TAWGC have made Turkish Airlines’ support essential to Antalya being recognized as an international premium destination for golfers with outstanding facilities.

The Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup is supported by National Car Rental & SOCAR.
