Hero MotoCorp extends title sponsorship of World Challenge

Hero MotoCorp Ltd. has extended its title sponsorship of the Hero World Challenge, a PGA -sanctioned tournament hosted by legendary Tiger Woods.

The Hero World Challenge will be played at Albany, Bahamas from November 29 to December 2, and will feature tournament host Woods and an invitation-only field comprised of the top ranked golfers in the world.

"The Hero World Challenge has evolved into a global event highlighting the world's best golfers year after year," Woods said.

"I'd like to thank Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of the tournament. Together with Tavistock Group, we are very excited to continue growing the Hero World Challenge at Albany."

Hero MotoCorp, a two-wheeler manufacturer, first title sponsored the Hero World Challenge in 2014 at Isleworth Golf & Country Club before moving to Albany in 2015.

The Hero World Challenge is a four-round, 72-hole stroke play event with a USD 3.5 million purse, a USD 1 million winner's prize and Official World Golf Ranking points awarded.

It will be held at Albany's par-72, 7,302-yard Championship Golf Course for the fourth consecutive year.
