太平洋聯盟在台正式啟航 世界球后索倫斯坦御駕親臨圓山 與球迷見面
2016-05-03

被譽為史上最成功的女子高爾夫運動員的巨星安妮卡索倫斯坦(Annika Sörenstam),五月三日下午抵達臺灣。她是以太平洋高爾夫聯盟國際會籍形象大使的身份,參加「高爾夫盛宴」系列活動。

One of the greatest players of all time, former LPGA superstar Annika Sorenstam will headline several fan events in Taipei from May 3rd as a Pacific Links International ambassador.

索倫斯坦以代言人身分與四百多位在地球友們一同參加圓山大飯店晚宴,見證太平洋聯盟國際會籍在臺灣的正式起航。

It will also be a monumental day as the International Membership programs of the Pacific Links International will now be officially offered for golfers in Taiwan. Sorenstam will have a meet-and-greet date with more than 400 local players and fans in a gala dinner in the first evening.

索倫斯坦今天(三日)參加在圓山大飯店舉行的高爾夫晚宴。明天(四日)則前往林口美麗華高爾夫球場,與TLPGA(臺灣女子職業高協)舉行示範教學。

The gala dinner was held today (May 3rd) at The Grand Hotel Taipei. And tomorrow (May 4th), Sorenstam will head to the Miramar Golf and Country Club to co-host a coaching clinic event with the LPGA of Taiwan.

她在下午的記者會中,回答記者的問題時提及她教她的女兒打球時,是一件很快樂的事,她希望她的女兒是很開心地學球;而教導其他業餘青少年選手打球時,主要是期望透過她更多的熱情感染他們,希望他們在學習的過程中能享受高爾夫的快樂,而不去想未來的發展或煩惱。

“It’s all about finding the passions,” Sorenstam said to the press this afternoon when asked where she wants golf to take her daughter to. “I want her to have fun, and so do the young players I coach. Have fun and find the passions along the journey, and appreciate them, not worrying about results and the future. I always hope my passion would inspire them.”

她表示,高爾夫確實是需要長期訓練才能夠提高技藝的一種運動,但這就是它的迷人之處,因為只要真正達到一個境界時,即使完成了一個漂亮的開球揮桿,那種成就感是別的運動無法給你的。

“Golf is a high technique sport. It may take a lot of time and grinding, but you will feel exhilarated when you reach new heights. Seeing a perfect tee shot off your wood, I mean, you can’t find that strong a sense of achievement in any other sport,” said Sorenstam.

她說:「而訓練青少年選手時,與其說要提高他們的球技,不如說希望透過我的熱情與我對高爾夫的理解,能改變他們對人生的觀點,高爾夫與人生有很多相似之處;如果你想了解一個人,與他打一場球就可以了,打球的過程就有如人格的塑造,因此希望能夠通過我去理解與發揚高爾夫運動帶來的刻苦丶自信丶抗壓的精神,進而改變他們的人生,讓他們的人生變得更積極。」

Sorenstam found similarities in golf and in life. “I tell my teen players, playing golf is one thing, but how you cope with the demands golf provides and handling pressure and responsibility, and ultimately finding who you truly are, these are the most important and will build the foundation in no matter what you do. You almost can get to know a person just playing golf with them,” said Sorenstam. “I hope the experience will help them see things differently and be more prepared and motivated in any other life events they might face.”

她也回答最近與曾雅妮的互動狀況,索倫絲坦表示,以雅妮過去的成就是十分少見的,因此雅妮也承受相當大的壓力,而目前雖然雅妮面臨較低潮的高球生涯,又需要負擔家庭的許多事情,因此做好自己是不夠的;高爾夫與人生一樣,不同的階段就要面對不同的問題,並作出不同的抉擇;「雅妮的經濟狀況還非常好,她只要能在一天或一場比賽中,表現很優秀,她一定可以重拾信心,再度帶給我們一個更好的她。」

Sorenstam confronted questions about her close friend, local star, and fellow former LPGA no.1 Yani Tseng. “Yani’s achievement has been somewhat never-before-seen. I know she’s been dealing with heavy pressure and expectations. It’s not just about doing your own jobs. There will be a lot of attention and doubts from people and you will be forced to face a lot of decision-making moments and family affairs,” said Sorenstam, who is positive on Yani resurrecting her dominating game. “I think Yani’s got a solid foundation. I believe she just needs that one good week and we will see her come back stronger than ever.”

索倫斯坦是近廿年來世界高壇最成功的女子球員,美國LPGA生涯累計共贏得72勝,包括在女子四大賽拿過10勝,並完成生涯大滿貫的輝煌成就。待選手生涯結束,索后仍致力推廣高爾夫運動。正因如此,近年來從北美快速拓展至亞洲的太平洋聯盟,特別聘請索倫絲坦為品牌代言人之一。索倫斯坦的亞洲之行起自中國武漢、廣州,以巡迴方式,最終在臺灣的台北圓山大飯店舉行最後一場晚宴,與三座城市的高爾夫熱情球友們尊榮會面。

One of the most successful female golfers in the history of the game, Sorenstam has won 72 LPGA Tour titles and 10 major championships, completing the career Grand Slam feat. After stepping away from competitive golf, she continued to occupy her schedule with golf promotional activities. Serving as the final destination of an Asia Tour after Wuhan and Guangzhou, Taipei will conclude the golf feast and welcome Sorenstam in a reception dinner to be held at The Grand Hotel Taipei and meet with the passionate Asian golf fans.

2016年初,太平洋聯盟決心拓展亞洲市場,前進臺灣成立分公司,並由TPGA(臺灣男子職業高協)前任副理事長廖國智先生,擔任董事長及總經理。廖董事長從一線的職業選手生涯退下後,轉戰商場非常成功。

Pacific Links International launched a Taiwan office earlier this year in an effort to grow its presence in the Asian market. Former vice chairman of the TPGA Liao Kuo-Chih, also a former Taiwanese professional player, was named the first president and general manager of Pacific Links Taiwan.

因此TLPGA理事長劉依貞在記者會中就提及這兩位職業選手是退役後成功轉型的兩個例子,她也期待能像這兩位前輩一樣,提升台灣高球環境。太平洋聯盟此次邀請索倫絲坦與TLPGA合作,來台舉辦教學活動,是繼三年前她曾首度應邀來台與TLPGA合辦教學活動後再度來台。

TLPGA chairwoman Liu Yi-Chen, in her speech in the press conference, also praised the contribution played by Sorenstam and Liao, in development of the sport after their successful pro careers. This is Sorenstam’s second trip to the home nation of Yani Tseng after a coaching clinic event three years ago in partnership with the TLPGA.

高爾夫經過數百年演變,仍在不斷地進化中。太平洋聯盟國際會籍,帶給全球高壇最大的禮物,就是以合宜的價格讓更多球友參與──打一場球(18洞)只要60美金,而且可以暢打全世界超過五百餘座頂級球場。太平洋聯盟的創立與成長,是一種讓球場及球友雙贏的全新概念。

Owning and operating membership programs in cooperation with more than 500 clubs and courses around the world, the Pacific Links International strives to create more playing opportunities for amateur golfers, at pleasant prices – normally just about US$60 for 18 holes. The birth of the new program serves a win-win solution for course owners and players in this ever evolving industry.

索倫斯坦曾多次參加太平洋聯盟「高爾夫盛宴」,她形容:「我在2008年從職業賽場上退下來,隨後發現我的生活中不能缺少高爾夫元素,因此不斷地尋找,後來結識了太平洋聯盟。那時候,我瞭解到聯盟發起人之一的杜廈先生,對推動高爾夫運動發展有自己一些獨到的想法,他預見了太平洋聯盟在推廣家庭高爾夫旅遊的遠景,包括女性和兒童高爾夫運動,這也正是我所看好的。所以很快地,我就跟杜廈先生站在同一條戰線上,同時支持這項事業的發展。」

“Since my retirement from professional golf in 2008, I’ve been searching to give back to the sport by helping golfers, especially in female and junior golf, as well as promoting the great concept of tourism golf. I met Mr. Du Sha and I was really impressed with Pacific Links’ plans for the future. I’m excited to be able to work with Pacific Links International as a brand ambassador, bringing people around the world more opportunities to enjoy the sport,” said Sorenstam.

太平洋聯盟成立於2009年,致力於為會員提供全球最著名城市和高爾夫聖地的擊球體驗,遍佈國際超過五百餘家聯盟球場,構成一張充滿無限價值的高爾夫網絡。從美巡賽旗下TPC球場系列的「鋸草」(TPC Sawgrass),到紐西蘭名場的「枴子角」(Cape Kidnappers)、「杉木崖」(Kauri Cliffs);穿過東南亞叢林,再到歐洲的莊園城堡,無論在海南的天涯海角,還是在雲南的陽光春城,太平洋聯盟國際會籍所帶來的,是一座座由不同地理環境和人文情懷造就的獨特高爾夫球場。歡迎球友們加入今年這場「高爾夫盛宴」,透過聯盟安排的震撼聲光視聽展演,體驗這些傳世經典球場的一流水準與優美風光。

Founded in 2009 by Du, Pacific Links International owns and operates a rich portfolio of golf courses around the globe. From the characteristic Cape Kidnappers and Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand, to jungle destinations in South Asia, and from the finest European chateau courses to the Yunnan exoticism in Southwest China, the Pacific Links International strives to create a collection of the most sought after courses in the world, delivering the best memorable golf experience for its members.

太平洋聯盟主席杜廈在會中提及,打高爾夫是一件快樂的事,在他創立的高爾夫王國裡,「國際卡」將帶給國內高爾夫全方位的發展,能讓會員實現帶著家人去全世界打球及旅遊的夢想。

Founder and chairman of the Pacific Links International Du said, “Golf makes us happy. And with the all-around portfolio of sites to choose from with our International Membership programs, we hope to spread the happiness and privilege to our members with access to playing around the globe.”

    杜廈指出,台灣是一個具有高球歷史與傳統的地方,雖然擁有60多座球場,但是並沒有具有十分特色的球場譬如沙漠型或熱帶雨林型等,因此為了讓台灣球友可以去更多更棒的球場打球,今年初在台灣成立分公司,推出了相同的「國際卡」,並在台灣增加了六座簽約球場,會員可以在這些球場享有太平洋聯盟的優惠會員價。

Du said, Taiwan has a rich golf culture, knowledgeable fans, and more than 60 courses but they don’t really derive from a diverse environment such as desert resort or tropical rain forest settings. Now with the International Memberships, local members will be offered special prices to play in not just the six newly-aligned clubs in Taiwan but a variety of world selections with refreshing features.

    晚宴中,杜廈也親自敘說太平洋聯盟今丶明年的目標與目前及未來的競爭力,目前台灣新加入的六座球場是山湖觀丶長庚丶關西老爺丶全國花園丶嘉南及信誼球場。

Du also shared his philosophy and vision in the region during the press conference. The six clubs and courses now included in the Pacific Links’ member choices are, Sunwood Lake Golf Club, Chang Gung Golf Club, Royal Kuan-Hsi Golf Club, National Golf Country Club, Chianan Golf Country Club, and Hsin Yi Golf Club.
