WELCOME TO THE
HERO WORLD CHALLENGE FROM PAWAN MUNJAL
The 2016 Hero World Challenge is here and it is time to golf again. It is with immense pleasure that I welcome you to my favorite golf event in the world, the Hero World Challenge. This marks the third edition of our partnership and the second year at the gorgeous Albany in The Bahamas, and this year promises to be as exciting as the previous years. I extend a “Hero’s Welcome” to the event host and my friend, Tiger Woods, and I congratulate the Tiger Woods Foundation and Tavistock Group on yet again hosting the strongest invitational field in golf.
Tiger remains an enduring global icon for all, having inspired millions of youngsters to pursue their dreams. He continues to nurture and support them through the college-access programs and local charity initiatives of the Tiger Woods Foundation, and we are indeed proud to have him as the Global Corporate Partner of Hero MotoCorp. Hero Motocorp has remained the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer for the past 15 consecutive years, and in recent years, has expanded its presence to over 33 countries across Asia, Africa, Central and South America. As a long-standing partner of various world bodies, including the International Hockey Federation (FIH) and International Cricket Council (ICC), along with local associations, Hero MotoCorp has supported the growth of multiple sports across the globe. Hero’s partnership with this marquee event is a natural extension of the brand’s characteristic association with various sport disciplines. As many of you experienced last year, the Hero World Challenge is all about golf – and a little more! It also gives you a flavor of India in the Caribbean. I can assure you, a lot of excitement is in store for everyone at the 2016 Hero World Challenge. I am personally looking forward to a week of top-quality golf and wish all the players the very best of luck. Thank you for being part of this unique celebration of golf. Enjoy the tournament! Pawan Munjal Chairman, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer Hero MotoCorp
