Aon brings $1m golf challenge to Australia

Aon will be bringing an exciting new element to ISPS HANDA Women’s Australian Open at The Grange Golf Club in Adelaide from Feb. 14-17, in partnership with the Ladies’ Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and PGA Tour.

The Aon Risk Reward Challenge is a season-long event that will highlight golf’s best strategic decision-makers. Aon will award a $1m prize to the player from each tour on top of the Aon leader board at the end of the regular season, for successfully tackling the most strategically challenging holes in the global LPGA 2019 tour. Aon will tally the best two scores from every event a player competes in, ensuring that all play is counted and providing a small advantage to those that make the cut.

Aon said the event reflects the company’s expertise in assessing risk and offering strategic recommendations in managing risk across a range of sectors.

“Golf is one of the best examples of how sportspeople need to balance risk and reward to maximise their performance, and (that) is what helps makes it so compelling for players and fans,” said Nick Green, head of sports at Aon. “We are delighted that our global partnership with golf will support the world’s best women’s golfers competing in Adelaide. The ISPS HANDA Women’s Australian Open is round two of a year-long challenge … and we’re excited to see how it evolves throughout 2019.”
