Excitement is building for the upcoming Porsche Singapore Classic 2024 as golf enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the star-studded event set to take place at the prestigious Laguna National Golf Resort Club from March 21st to 24th. The tournament promises thrills both on and off the course, with the announcement of major winner Shane Lowry as the first star to tee off, alongside a record-breaking prize purse of US$2,500,000 – a substantial increase from last year’s US$2,000,000.
Irish golf sensation Shane Lowry, fresh off his triumphant victory at the 2019 Open Championship, will be returning to Singapore for the first time since 2012. Lowry, who made waves in 2009 as the first amateur winner of the Irish Open, is no stranger to the spotlight. His participation in the Porsche Singapore Classic marks the beginning of the Asian Swing on the 2024 Race to Dubai, adding an extra layer of prestige to the event.
Porsche, renowned for its luxurious sports cars, has solidified its commitment to the world of golf by extending its global golf involvement with a multi-year deal to become the Title Partner of the Singapore Classic. This partnership not only elevates the tournament’s status but also provides worldwide customers and fans with exclusive brand experiences, further enhancing Porsche’s presence in professional golf.
The DP World Tour’s return to Singapore last year after an eight-year hiatus was met with great enthusiasm, culminating in South Africa’s Ockie Strydom emerging victorious at Laguna National. The tournament’s rich history includes legendary moments from Major Champions such as Sir Nick Faldo, Ian Woosnam, Vijay Singh, and Adam Scott, who have all claimed victories on the DP World Tour in Singapore.
One of the most unforgettable moments in Singaporean golfing history occurred during the 2006 Singapore Masters, held at Laguna National, when local favorite Mardan Mamat clinched the trophy in dramatic fashion, edging out England’s Nick Dougherty by a single stroke.
As anticipation mounts for the Porsche Singapore Classic 2024, golf enthusiasts around the world eagerly await the opportunity to witness top-tier talent, thrilling competition, and unforgettable moments against the stunning backdrop of Laguna National Golf Resort Club.
