Swinging into Summer: A Preview of the Prestige Masters Series and Beyond

As we move into the more comfortable weather for golf in Bangalore there is an exciting period of Golf Tournaments about to get underway at the Prestige Golfshire Club.

Starting on May 18th the Prestige Masters Series Golf Tournament for 2024 gets underway with the first qualifying leg being played in the tournaments 10th year.

Table Space is the headline sponsor of this golf tournament for the third year running and is joined by a host of associated sponsors including HSBC Bank, Mercedes Benz and Kohler to name a few of the more recognizable names behind the event in 2024.

The Prestige Golfshire Club will also host several new events in 2024 including the newly formed International Trophy, The Pairs Championship, Back on Black and Team Scramble tournaments also.

There is a wide array of events on the calendar for 2024 and all of these events are open to golfers from all over India and across the globe.

The winner of this years Prestige Masters Series will win a Trip to the 2025 US Masters Tournament in Augusta Georgia to walk on the sacred grounds of the Augusta National Golf Club and watch the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler compete for the coveted Green Jacket. This is one of the most sought after sporting tickets in the world and thanks to Golf Tripz and the Prestige Golfshire Club the series final winner will receive this great prize.

This week in the US on the PGA Tour is the second major event of the year on the golfing calendar, The USPGA Championship, being played at the Valhalla Golf and Country Club in Louisville Kentucky.

The PGA Championship was last played here in 2014 when Rory McIlroy won in the near dark of night holding off Phil Mickelson on the final hole.

But the year that most remember was the 3 hole playoff of 2000 between Tiger Woods and Bob May. That was the first year that this Grand Slam Golf Tournament had gone to a 3 hole playoff and although Bob May the Californian with a huge amateur career had played so well for 4 days, that 3 hole playoff against Tiger was just too much for him and Woods went on to take the title in a year where he dominated the game totally.

This year Woods will be making his return to Valhalla but cannot be considered a serious contender. The injury plagued Woods has not got the stamina or body to make it over the 72 holes required and this was very evident at the Masters Tournament in April when he finished last of those who made it to the weekend.
