This relationship has allowed us to continuously find ways to give back to the communities and structures we operate in, which is in line with the Puma Energy Global objectives.”

The defending champion and winner of the tournament Diane Lucas, cited ambition, passion and dedication as the premise for his 9 year unbeaten streak at the Jwaneng Open. He advised up and coming golfers - especially the youth - to focus on the game and ensure they had enough time to practice in order to sharpen their skills.

When I started this game I was in my 20’s and I was often frustrated that I was not the best and did not like losing. Now in my 40’s, through hard work and perseverance I am a 9 time Champion and I encourage the youth to work hard and topple me as champion,” he challenged.
