“Fascination, performance and passion – three words synonymous with the game of golf and the brand promise of Mercedes-Benz. Like our products, golf is a game of perfection, each and every stroke has to be perfect each and every time. This strong connection between the game and our brand has led to the active involvement for Mercedes-Benz in this sport since 1989.

“Today, the MercedesTrophy has evolved into an extremely successful tournament series for amateurs, staged over 60 countries, and we’re very proud to host it for the 28th year in Malaysia,” Mercedes-Benz Malaysia president and CEO Dr Claus Weidner said in a statement issued from Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
