Who would of thought when teeing up in your local Holden Scramble on the 19th June 2011, that a year on you would be boarding a Delta Air Lines flight to San Francisco?
For Nowra Holden Scramble participant, Adam Watson that is just what happened.
After playing in his local event and qualifying through to the Regional Final at Gungahlin Lakes, Adam thought his Scramble adventure had finished for the year, content with making it through to the Regional Final. Little did he know that just for playing in his local event and entering a promotional competition he would embark of the trip of a lifetime!
As part of the 20th Anniversary promotions in 2011, the Holden Scramble’s newest partner, Delta Air Lines teamed up with the PGA and Holden to provide one lucky Scramble participant with a trip to the US Open, including return airfares for two, accommodation, transfers and season passes to the US Open.
Adam Watson was the lucky name drawn out and, whilst during the trip he did not see an Aussie take victory at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, the adventure certainly made is Holden Scramble experience memorable.
“We had the most unbelievable time, from the moment we touched down in San Fran, we were treated like royalty. And then there was the golf - it was wonderful to be at such an amazing event and follow some of the Aussies, and also the international golfers around such a fantastic course. The whole experience was just great.” said Adam upon his return.
“We are extremely grateful to Delta Air Lines, the PGA and of course Holden for providing us with such a memorable opportunity”.
Originally Adam thought his team mates at Nowra had set him up for a “gotcha call” and he couldn’t believe his luck when he was notified that he had won the trip. Having never been to America before Adam took the opportunity to extend his trip and make the most of the holiday with his wife Sandy, venturing to Las Vegas and Los Angeles with the US Open and San Francisco the ultimate highlight.
The partnership between Delta Air Lines and the Holden Scramble commenced in 2011 and has continued into the 21st season of the event, with Delta once again offering up flights to the USA to be won by lucky participants, PGA Professionals and Holden Dealer sponsors.
