Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co Ltd in collaboration with IMG and the Sports Authority of Thailand, jointly hosted the second edition of the “Young Ambassadors Program” on Saturday (January 18) to provide extensive knowledge about golf and tournaments as well as to inspire a new generation of youths to get involved in the sport.

 

Participants will have an opportunity to be a part of the world tournament “Honda LPGA Thailand 2020” and be selected for an exclusive internship to work on a major golf tournament overseas. The seminar programme was held at Chalermprakeat Building 25 Floor, Sports Authority of Thailand.

Pitak Pruittisarikorn, chief operating officer of Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co Ltd, said, “As part of the ‘Road to Honda LPGA Thailand’, the Young Ambassadors Programme was organised for the second time with the aim of developing golf in Thailand by supporting young Thai golfers and enthusiasts, leveraging the country’s golf potential, and to continuously elevate the sport to a world class level. 

“The seminar-style programme encourages, empowers, and inspires youths and novice golfers to gain in-depth knowledge on several topics related to golf. We strongly believe that all participants will benefit from this programme and will utilise their newly gained knowledge to ensure that golf in Thailand will continue to go from strength to strength.”

The seminar featured workshops with famous guest speakers on various topics such as “The Future of a Career in the Golf Industry”, “The Importance of Digital Media”, “Creating your vision and goal”, and more. 

The speakers included experts in their fields ranging from both government agencies to leading business organisations involved in golf. Their insights provided valuable knowledge and inspiration to the youths who attended the programme. 

Thirty of the participants will be invited to serve as volunteers at the Honda LPGA Thailand 2020, which will be held from February 20-23 at the Siam Country Club, Pattaya, Chonburi. 

After the tournament, the contributions of these students will be reviewed, and the six most outstanding candidates will be offered an exclusive internship with the chance to join a major golf tournament both in Thailand and abroad.
