Major Winners, Asian Tour Stars Combine to Support Sentosa Golf Club's #KeepItGreen Campaign

(RELEASE) - Major winners Sergio Garcia and Louis Oosthuizen, as well as Asian Tour No.1 Gavin Green, have joined forces to lend their support to #KeepItGreen, a campaign created by host venue Sentosa Golf Club in order to tackle two of golf’s most important issues: environmental sustainability and participation growth.

Captured in an inspirational video shot during the SMBC Singapore Open, currently taking place over Sentosa’s World Top 100-ranked Serapong Course, the stars of the field also share their thoughts on the quality of the Serapong layout, recently voted the Asian Tour’s ‘Best Golf Course’.

Supported by the R&A and the Singapore Golf Association, #KeepItGreen is the opening activity in an unprecedented year for Sentosa. As well as the SMBC Singapore Open contested over the famed Serapong Course, Sentosa’s New Tanjong Course will stage the Women’s Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship from February 21-24, closely followed by the LPGA Tour’s HSBC Women’s Champions (March 1-4), as well as the Men’s Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship later this year (October 4-7).

As well as highlighting two of the game’s most important issues, the video references Sentosa’s unique collaboration with 2017 Asia Tour Order of Merit winner Gavin Green whereby, for every green in regulation he hits during this week’s tournament, the club will donate a tee time to local youngsters. Green’s efforts, which have so far amassed 11 tee times owing to a solid opening round of 71, will allow young golfers, who may not otherwise have had the chance, an opportunity to pick up the game and follow the footsteps of golfing superstars. The video also draws on the thoughts of 2017 Green Jacket winner, Sergio Garcia, who speaks of the inspirational role sport can play.
