HERO WORLD CHALLENGE

WHEN MY FATHER AND I STARTED THE HERO WORLD Challenge 20 years ago, we could not have imagined the impact the tournament would create. Its lasting success is a testament to my father’s legacy. He instilled in me a commitment to improve the lives of youth in need, and the Hero World Challenge helps my foundation do just that. I am very happy to welcome back Hero MotoCorp, our title sponsor. Working with Hero and my friend Pawan Munjal, Chairman, Managing Director and CEO, I am also excited to continue as an ambassador for this outstanding global company. As the world’s largest manufacturer of two-wheelers, Hero is a strong brand that has helped elevate the global reach and impact of the Hero World Challenge.

Since opening the inaugural learning lab campus more than 10 years ago, our programs have served more than 165,000 students. We’ve introduced 85,000 girls to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers and reached 2,500 educators through our TGR EDU: Create professional development program. The Earl Woods Scholar Program helps many high-achieving, low-income students become the first in their family to attend and graduate from college. It currently supports 218 scholars and alumni and boasts a graduation rate of 98 percent, among the highest of scholarship programs in the U.S. TGR EDU: Explore, a free digital education platform developed in partnership with Discovery Education, offers educators quality lesson plans and introduces students to options for college and careers in STEM. In addition to benefiting my foundation, proceeds from the Hero World Challenge also support the Tavistock Foundation and the Bahamas Youth Foundation.

welcome to

Because of events like the Hero World Challenge, managed by TGR Live, my foundation has made a significant difference in the lives of youth. Since 1999, we have raised more than $26 million for TGR Foundation to make an impact through education.

Albany is a tremendous host site for this tournament, and we are excited to once again bring the Hero World Challenge to the beautiful resort community that I started with my friend, Joe Lewis. Since moving the Hero World Challenge to Albany in 2015, our partners, guests and eighteen of the world’s best golfers have enjoyed the championship, links-style golf course and these great facilities. It means so much to me to share these success stories, which are a testament to your support of my foundation and the Hero World Challenge. Thank you and enjoy the 2018 Hero World Challenge at Albany.

FROM TGR FOUNDATION FOUNDER TIGER WOODS, “I am not one to settle for the status quo, so I challenged my staff to make bold choices and explore uncharted territory. More than twenty years later, the results speak for themselves. We worked in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) before it was a common acronym. We’ve been pioneers in positive youth development, building resilience and developing self-advocacy skills in young people. Research now confirms that these are powerful indicators for long-term student success. And we have one of the highest college graduation rates among scholarship programs in the U.S. While we’ve made great strides in helping students and their communities, we must do more to support a global issue that impacts all of us. Quality educational resources can transform students, teachers and schools. Long term, they have the power to impact crime, generational poverty and unemployment.

21

Together, we are innovators, educators, business leaders and regular people investing in quality education to help students thrive. I’m dedicated to the growth of this important work, and I truly hope you’ll join me. This is just the beginning.” ➤

In addition to the international manufacturing facilities in Colombia and Bangladesh, Hero has five globally benchmarked plants in India. Two of these are based in the northern Indian state of Haryana at Dharuhera and Gurgaon, while the other three facilities are respectively based out of Haridwar in the hill state of Uttarakhand, Neemrana in the northern state of Rajasthan, and at Halol in the state of Gujarat on the western coast of India.

Hero currently has an annual production capacity of 9.2 million units of two-wheelers that will increase to 11 million units once its upcoming manufacturing facility at Chittoor, in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, becomes operational.

The Company’s manufacturing facilities at Neemrana and Halol have been aptly called the Garden Factories for their various green measures, which have redefined manufacturing. Home to one of the largest rooftop solar projects in the country, the Garden Factory at Neemrana offsets 1,600 tons of carbon dioxide per annum by producing 1460 KW green energy through solar panels spread across 60,000 square meters.

Other key measures spread across the facilities for water and energy optimization are Big Foot air handlers, which provide an optimal energy operation, efficient building envelope and orientation that ensures a reduced load on cooling systems.

From the pairings luncheon on Tuesday to the intimate Pro-Am dinner on Wednesday, the chance to interact with your playing partners is second to none. “I think it’s a great Pro-Am because it’s small and select so it’s a cool experience for everyone,” said the 2017 champion, Rickie Fowler. “The week is definitely different than the other events we play. It’s laid back, relaxed, unique, has a small field, great sponsors, and some fun people involved.”

n THE CHAMPION Rickie Fowler finished with a final-round 61 to win. 2017 IN REVIEW

AFTER SETTING A COURSE RECORD OF 61 IN his final round, Rickie Fowler swooped in and claimed the 2017 Hero World Challenge victory. The former Oklahoma State University All-American arrived in The Bahamas ready to take on the 7,400-yard Ernie Els-designed golf course and join a field of some of the game’s best. “The 18 guys that are here have earned their way here – and this tournament celebrates that,” said Fowler. “No one gets here by mistake.”

37

Woods secured seven top-10 finishes this year, including second place at the PGA Championship and first place at the TOUR Championship.

Woods’ last round of a 64 at the 2018 PGA Championship was his best score in a Major throughout his respected career. After a 19-foot birdie putt on the last hole, he let out a huge celebratory fist pump. Although he wasn’t going to claim the trophy, he knew he was back in the game after a long road to recovery.

OR GOLF FANS AROUND THE WORLD, Tiger Woods’ return to the golf course brought a new level of excitement and anticipation as he hit the links for the first time at last year’s Hero World Challenge. Little did they know, he was going to provide them an action-packed season.

Shortly after, Woods recorded his 80th PGA career victory, finishing the season-ending tournament with a last round of 1-over-par 71 and a two-shot lead. Thousands of fans gathered, chanting and cheering as he held his 80th PGA TOUR trophy at the 2018 TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia. “I appreciate it a little bit more than I did because I don’t take it for granted that I’m going to have another decade or two decades in my future of playing golf at this level,’’ Woods said, “It means a lot more to me now in that sense because I didn’t know if I’d ever be out here playing again, doing this again.’’

43

Woods has changed the face of golf, winning a nearrecord 14 Major championships. Since the inception of the Hero World Challenge in 1998, Woods holds the most Hero World Challenge victories at five, and will be looking to add another win this year at Albany.

At the 2018 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Fowler placed second, securing his best result at this event. He finished with a final-hole birdie and a score of 67 only falling one stroke behind winner, Patrick Reed. “I am ready to go win a Major, but this was kind of the first Major week that I understood, knew and felt that,” Fowler said after his loss.

Proving his focus is back on the game, Day secured his second win of the season at the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing at 12-under 272. After losing a three-shot lead on the back nine, Day’s tee shot on the difficult 17th hole bounced off the pin and landed less than three feet away.

Entering the final day, Fleetwood was six shots back of the lead. He wasted little time, draining a 70-footer for birdie at the second hole, and then added a birdie at holes three, six and seven, moving him from T23 to second. This was the largest move up the leaderboard into a runner-up finish in the history of the U.S. Open.

Although he did not win the Masters and U.S. Open in the same season, he earned his third top-15 finish in five U.S. Open starts.

HILE IT’S HARD TO COMPETE with a gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games and recording the first hole-in-one in the history of Olympic Golf, Justin Rose’s 2018 season might have topped it. For the first time in his career, Rose accumulated the most points to take home the FedExCup trophy, the PGA TOUR’s season-long championship.

“I think the reason I’m sort of standing here today as the FedExCup champion is largely to do with the consistency with which I’ve played, a ton of top-10s,” Rose said. With two wins, three runners-up and eleven top-10 finishes this season, Justin’s 2018 season was the definition of consistent.

LONDON, ENGLAND

He claimed his second career World Golf Championships title at the WGC-HSBC Champions, coming from eight shots back on the final day to win with a closing 67. The eight-stroke, come-from-behind victory was better than any previous comeback in his career. At the Fort Worth Invitational, Justin finished at 20 under for a three-stroke victory over defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka.

Since its opening in 2010, Albany has quickly established itself as the ultimate place to live, work and play.


HERO WORLD CHALLENGE

The 600-acre oceanside community of Albany was the collective vision of its founders – noted private investor and entrepreneur Joe Lewis and his private investment organization Tavistock Group, golfing greats Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, and actor and musician Justin Timberlake. Becoming a destination where families can live, work and play in the ultimate resortstyle setting, Albany is a place where service, amenities, luxury and privacy are unmatched.

The collection of world-class amenities ensures there is something for everyone, from the 71-slip mega-yacht marina, championship golf course designed by Ernie Els, racquet center or numerous pools to the family water park, kids' clubhouse, casual and fine dining restaurants, spa and salon and state-of-theart fitness center with lap pool and CrossFit course.

A L B A N Y, B A H A M A S

WITH ITS 700 ISLANDS AND ATOLLS, The Bahamas has long been a warm water playground and haven for the world’s international set, early on entering its heyday of cosmopolitan glamour. In the 1980s, Inspector Gadget creator and French native Jean Chalopin recognized its potential and sought New Providence island as a beachfront hideaway, and his petal-pink estate then marked the beginning of a modern paradise. Known as Albany House, this famed beachside residence later became the cornerstone for a new community which is quickly gaining similarities to Monaco.

Over the years, the sophisticated enclave has added new offerings, all centrally located around the heartbeat of the community – the marina. A collection of shops provides a convenient destination for the latest in apparel, fashion, jewelry, art and more while the Albany Financial Center brings commercial activity, servicing numerous international organizations from private banks, legal firms and insurance companies to accounting firms and trust companies. The Sanctuary, set adjacent to the marina plaza, brings state-ofthe-art recording facilities to the community, enabling the world’s top musicians to work from Albany.

91

Perhaps another part that makes the community so attractive is the multitude of real estate lifestyle options, ranging from expansive beachfront estates or threestory villas with ocean views to multi-acre equestrian ranchettes or luxurious marina residences with uninterrupted ocean views. ➤


HERO WORLD CHALLENGE A L B A N Y, B A H A M A S

Numerous custom home lots are available within Albany in a variety of types – some overlooking the championship golf course, a collection just steps from the beach and the latest offering surrounding the planned equestrian center. For others, one of Albany’s villas – in three distinctive styles including beachfront, oceanview and club villas – offers everything a family would need, from three to seven bedrooms spanning up to 6,000 square feet.

92

“Our idea was to deliver a lifestyle for people who want to have a holiday home as well as live here full time,” said Managing Partner Christopher Anand. “What has been created here at Albany has never been done in The Bahamas, or anywhere, and achieves our founders’ vision to make this community one of the finest in the world.” The mega-yacht marina is now surrounded by stunning apartment residences rivaling those found in New York, London and Paris – with more being added each year.

AZUR A PENTHOUSE Set atop CUBE is the stunning two-story penthouse, Azura. n


HERO WORLD CHALLENGE

Combining the best in waterfront living with unparalleled luxury, these marina residences dwell in some of the most architecturally inspiring buildings in the Caribbean, designed by renowned architects including Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), Morris Adjmi Architects, Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman Architects, HKS Architects, OOAK Architects and Squire and Partners. From the ornate exterior of Orchid, designed by Adjmi, to the distinctive interlacing design on the exterior of Honeycomb, designed by Ingels, each of the six sold-out apartment buildings feature open floor plans promoting the highest level of cosmopolitan glamour. Adjacent to Honeycomb is another Ingels creation called CUBE, bringing 23 residences spanning up to 11,000 square feet, each of which will feature private pools in every terrace overlooking the marina. Next door is the geometric Tetris building, combining one- and two-story private residences in a unique, staggered scheme to capture the stunning views of the mega-yacht marina and promenade. The creation of Swedish architecture firm OOAK Architects, the modular block design combines 25 private residences spanning from 2,400 square feet to more than 15,000 square feet.

“Our vision when creating Tetris was to create a variety of bespoke apartments, each with different qualities and experiences that would come together in one building,” said Marie Kojzar, partner of OOAK. “Tetris features a number of two-level ‘duplex’ apartments which feature double-height space, with 26-foot ceilings – allowing the resident to truly take advantage of the exquisite marina views.” The latest residential building to grace the northern side of the marina was designed by Squire and Partners. With 26 private residences spanning up to 15,000 square feet, the building’s sleek exterior façade combined with the grand outdoor terraces creates an unparalleled indoor-outdoor luxury living experience. Defined by an informal elegance, this new way of life for Albany residents is quickly gaining similarities to Monaco and redefining modern-day island living. n

HOME TO SOME OF THE MOST ARCHITECTURALLY inspiring buildings in the Caribbean, Albany will be adding another magnificent residential building to the community’s mega-yacht marina. Named Squire after its creator – Squire and Partners – Albany’s latest marina building will offer a collection of 26 private residences spanning from 2,700 to more than 15,000 square feet. The first seven levels offer single-story residences with up to six bedrooms, while the top two levels showcase a pair of luxury, two-story penthouses. Squire and Partners, based in the United Kingdom, is an architecture and design practice with experience spanning four decades, earning an international reputation for architecture informed by the history and culture where it is placed. Their award-winning portfolio includes work for some of the world’s leading developers, from the five-star Bulgari Hotel in London to Britain’s largest public trade union, UNISON HQ.

Unique to this building are the expansive private terraces and spas which create a grand outdoor living and dining area, allowing each resident to truly take advantage of the exquisite marina and ocean views. Combined with the building’s sleek exterior facade, Squire celebrates the ultimate in modern island living.

Q

How does Squire  and Partners  approach  projects and how did you approach the design of this marina building at Albany? A: Our approach responds to the unique heritage and context of each site, considering established street patterns, scale and proportions, to create timeless architecture rooted in its location. Embracing traditional and emerging technologies in craft and construction, we strive to deliver a rigorously detailed product.

Q

What about the natural setting of Albany and The Bahamas inspired the design of Squire? A: For the Squire building in its enviable location, we sought to capitalize on the relationship between the inhabitants – the sea and the sky. Our designs aim to create a seamless experience from inside to out, introducing nature and eroded forms into the fabric of the building.  The apartments are orientated to create framed views of sunrises and sunsets, for a living experience which changes throughout the day and into the evening.

SQUIRE

The Hero World Challenge Journal editors had a chance to sit down with the partners of the firm to talk about this latest project.

Q

The design of the building – and the incredible size of the balconies – is unique. Share a bit about how you came up with that concept. A: We were excited by a continual sinuous balcony running the entire length of each floor – a ‘super deck’ more akin to yacht design. The terraces reach in and out of the apartments, creating an organic aesthetic of movement and erosion. Living areas are extended and enhanced by the connection with outside, taking reference from traditional local covered veranda spaces. The free-flowing form of the balconies is made possible through technical advances in construction to give a graceful and lightweight appearance which appears to defy gravity.

Q

Where does Squire and Partners go when looking for architectural inspiration?

99

A: Our first inspiration is always from the site itself, delving into the specific history, culture and context which makes the project unique. Using this information as a springboard, we explore contemporary craft and technology to realize our visions, with people and the joy of living in the spaces always at the forefront of our minds. n

SANCTUARY

A haven for creators – from those topping the charts to those aspiring to do the same.


“The Sanctuary is an incredible place full of inspiration and vibes to create and record in.” – ALICIA KEYS

The circular jewel set on the northern side of Albany Marina combines state-of-theart recording facilities, and cutting-edge equipment and technology with renowned management, led by industry icons Ann Mincieli of Jungle City Studios and Charles Goldstuck, co-founder of Hitco Entertainment.

This past summer, The Sanctuary partnered with the Joel A. Katz Music and Business Entertainment Program at Kennesaw State University for a one-week intensive music camp for youth, giving students the opportunity to learn first-hand media production tools, audio and record production, sound design and more using The Sanctuary's world-class facilities. “There are probably more talented musicians per capita in The Bahamas than anywhere else, and this was an opportunity to build a world-class facility that can serve as a catalyst for local talent development,” said Goldstuck, who was instrumental in the creation and development of this true sanctuary for musicians and creators. n

THE SANCTUARY

SINCE OPENING LAST DECEMBER, THE Sanctuary has provided a place for artists to work while also enjoying the world-class amenities, privacy and resort-style luxury of Albany. Musicians, artists and industry professionals from around the world have been inspired by the atmosphere, design and natural environment of The Sanctuary and the beauty of The Bahamas.

In addition to servicing professionals, The Sanctuary provides a place for tomorrow’s stars to learn and develop as musicians. Through a partnership with the Bahamas Youth Foundation and Windsor School, students have the opportunity to attend private lessons, camps and workshops in all areas of the music industry.

HERO WORLD CHALLENGE

In its first year, The Sanctuary has welcomed some of the industry’s top musicians including Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Jon Bellion, Nipsey Hussle and Shania Twain. It has been featured in Billboard Magazine and others, exposing the unique offering to recording musicians, sound engineers, producers and performers from around the world.
