Many golf fans know that Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson can hit a ball enormous distances, but many have only recently become aware that there are some South Africans that are the best pure long drivers in the world?
And these guys now need us to show a little bit of our South African pride by supporting the members of Team South Africa who will be traveling to Mazatlan, Mexico, in November. Here they will compete against teams from around the world in the International Long Drive World Team Championship.
These bohemeth men have advanced from regional qualifiers across the country to reach the pinnacle of the sport in South Africa. Now they need a bit of help to take their game to the world stage and compete against the USA, Canada, and the best from around the globe.
They are raising donations that will go toward subsidizing the South African athletes’ flights and accommodations and ensuring they have everything they need give their best performance and make South Africa proud!
What do they need?
Quantum are hoping to raise R 100 000 to defray the costs of sending our boys over to Mexico. The guys will be paying a portion of the costs themselves, but as you might imagine a trip of this nature can be quite expensive. With no government grants or corporate sponsorship to assist them, they are relying on our support to help them reach their goal.
As a thank-you gesture, Quantum will be rewarding the donors with terrific perks – everything from souvenirs to sportswear to exclusive banner advertising at events!
South Africa is known as a global Rugby, Cricket powerhouse, but few people realize that this country also produces some of the finest long drivers in the world. Our support for Team S.A at the International Long Drive World Team Championship will help our country build upon a tradition of excellence that will surely grow in the years to come.
The International Long Drive Challenge (ILDC), is the ONLY organization in S.A that promotes the awesome sport of long drive golf with championship events worldwide. We truly are ‘The Global Home Run Derby of Golf’ and having been involved with Quantum for just under a year now, I would love to see this sport receive the exposure and recognition it deserves.
