“The swing felt good, but I didn’t see where the ball landed,” remembered Leoni. “It was only on hearing the spectators’ reaction did I realize that the ball was in the hole.” The member of the Monticello Golf Club, which is not far from Lake Como, was given a standing ovation at the victory ceremony in the evening. “It’s crazy,” said the 56-year old. “I’m so proud, and I’d like to thank

The World Final took place for the sixth time in Mallorca. Played over two Stableford rounds in windy conditions at the Club de Golf Alcanada and, for the first time, at the Canyamel Golf complex from 6 to 9 May, the golfers competed for the World Trophy for teams and in the individual events (gross and 3 net classes). Team South Korea triumphed in the 2018 Golf Cup season’s World Trophy when finishing well ahead of Team China and Team
The gross title in the prestigious individual competition was secured by Phil White. The Englishman narrowly missed out on the big dream of playing in a professional tournament by just one shot after posting a highly impressive three under par for the two rounds. An overall score of four under or better would have opened up the door to the world of the golf pros for White, who travelled to the World Final with a +2 handicap. A wild card for the
“It has been brilliant. A tournament that feels like a professional event, two perfectly prepared beautiful golf courses and then most of all the victory with the big award ceremony – simply indescribable. This is of course the highlight of my golfing life,” said White before adding with a smile on his face, “Even if one stroke too much hurts a bit. Participating in the

The consumption and CO2 emission values were determined in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).

These values cannot be compared to the values determined in accordance with the NEDC measuring procedure used up to now.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
