BUENOS AIRES, Argentina--Starting next week, and for the fifth consecutive year, Zurich Argentina will renew its commitment to golf in the region. Together with PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, it will stage the beginning of the Zurich Argentina Swing. The competition will reward the player with the best performance in the four events that take place in Argentina during the 2019 season, providing a bonus of U.S $10,000 to the winner.
“After all these years, we at Zurich are very happy with our past experiences with the Zurich Argentina Swing, and our intention is to continue building and collaborating so that golf in Argentina and Latin America grows,” said Fabio Rossi, CEO of Zurich Argentina.
The Zurich Argentina Swing starts with the Molino Cañuelas Championship, the second tournament of the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Schedule. The tournament is April 11-14 at Cañuelas Golf Club. The other three tournaments that make up the Zurich Argentina Swing are the 88th Abierto OSDE del Centro presentado po FiberCorp, April 25-28 in Cordoba, the Neuquén Argentina Classic and the 114th VISA Open of Argentina, scheduled for November—the exact dates still to be determined.
“Argentina has played a very important role in PGA TOUR Latinoamérica since the Tour was created. The fact that historically the TOUR has a strong link with Zurich, makes this partnership and initiative in Argentina even more significant in the history of the Tour,” said Jack Warfield, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica President. “We greatly appreciate the loyalty of Zurich, and we know in return we are providing significant added value to the company. I also know how much our players value the Zurich Argentina Swing and what it means to them.”
Similarly, Zurich Argentina has announced that it will maintain its social commitment with the “Hoyo 18” dynamic in 2019. For each birdie or eagle players make on the 18th hole of each of the Swing’s tournaments, Zurich Argentina will make a donation to benefit the Fundacion Integrar Futuros Profesionales, whose personalized scholarship program supports university students in their effort to become professionals in the workplace.
In the first four editions of the Zurich Argentina Swing, Kent Bulle (United States) in 2015, Samuel Del Val (Spain) in 2016, Jared Wolfe (U.S.) in 2017 and Clodomiro Carranza (Argentina) in 2018 have won the Swing and the bonus prize.
