Golf Legend Gary Player To Host IGATE CEO Cup Tournament, Presented In Association With Forbes

FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iGATE (Nasdaq:IGTE), the first integrated technology and operations company providing Business Outcomes-based solutions, today announced that golf legend Gary Player will serve as co-host of the first annual iGATE CEO Cup charity golf tournament Jan. 12-13.

Player, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, will conduct a clinic for participating CEOs, showing them the skills that earned him 165 tournament wins over five decades. Player also will attend an awards ceremony, pose for pictures and join the golfers for a private cocktail reception.

The iGATE CEO Cup, launched by iGATE in association with Forbes, is inviting CEOs of Global 2000 companies for a unique challenge. CEOs participating in the two-day event at the world-famous PLAYERS Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass, Florida will compete for a $100,000 cash prize to be donated to their favorite charities.

"This is truly a one-of-a-kind event. Charity has never been so exciting and I am glad that the best minds in business are competing in the world's greatest game on one of the finest courses," Player said. "We're going to have a lot of fun at the iGATE CEO Cup. I'm really looking forward to sharing some tips with this group and see which golfers really have their games in shape."  

"This promises to be the thrill of a lifetime for any golfer who has watched and admired Gary Player over the years," said Phaneesh Murthy, CEO, iGATE. "He stands as an inspiration to all of us with his many accomplishments, and we look forward to having him on board for our inaugural CEO tournament."

Player is widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers in history. The South African native has won 165 tournaments over five decades, including nine major championships on the regular tour, and nine major championships on the Senior Tour. He is one of only five golfers – and the only non-American golfer – to win each of the sport's four major championships, known as a career Grand Slam.
