Turkish AirlinesTurkish Airlines, flying to more countries than any other airline wowed golfing crowds with its Epic Golf Ball project. The sponsor of the Turkish Airlines Open golf tournament arranged a surprise for the players of the game, where golfers competed in a different type of race, with golf balls racing down a set of giant sand sculptures. Acclaimed motor racing commentator, David Croft, led the crowds on the journey of the “Epic Gold Ball Race”, keeping everyone watching in suspense.



The championship series consisted of four qualifying rounds and a final match. A golf ball represented each of the 72 professional athletes for the qualifying races. Within these four qualifying rounds, those that came in the top 5 went on to become part of the final 20 players in the grand final of this Epic Golf Ball Race. The final winner Justin Harding with ball number 61, from South Africa, beat off rivals Hideto Tanihara from Japan with ball number 18 and C.T. Pan from Taiwan with ball number 17, who came second and third place respectively.



Hideto Tanihara hit the best laps of the contest with golf ball number 18 – a record with 1:02:32, whilst C.T. Pan’s golf ball gained top speed records with 3.2 mps.



Turkish Airlines, title sponsor of the golf tournament since 2013, aimed to create a wider awareness for golf through this fun project which blended the golf world with different interests.
