He commented, "On behalf of Wattayah Motors - the official dealer for Audi in Oman, it is my pleasure to congratulate the winning team on having proven themselves as champion amateur golfers. The concept of the Audi quattro Cup is to help raise the profile of golf in Oman and to recognise the finest golfers in the Sultanate - and today we have done just that. We wish John and Shirley Prescott the best of luck for the World Final at Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles later this year."
