DLF Hindustan Times Power Golf tee-ed off in style in its inaugural edition.

Sunday morning saw strategy wizards from the corporate world brimming with sporty energy as they came together to tee off at the DLF Hindustan Times Power Golf.

All the 40 invitees, turned up early to get on the greens at the DLF Golf and Country Club.

Former cricketer, and now an ace golfer, Kapil Dev, stole the show with the maximum number of awards. Not only was he the flag-bearer of the team that won, but also managed to take away the crystal emblem for the best individual gross score.

While the 18 holes lasted the participants for more than four hours on a nippy morning, a sumptuous brunch over beer and cocktails only added to the sunshine fun. Spot prizes were up for takes, with some winners hastily putting down their lunch plates to accept them.

Gregory W Cappelli, co-CEO, Apollo Group Inc. and chairman, Apollo Global, was seen enjoying the game thoroughly. While Ajay Relan, founder of CX Partners, made an early exit, others stayed on over brunch with new friends.

Representing the top Indian CXO league, there were Raj Jain, MD and CEO of Bharti Walmart and U S Bhartia, CMD of India Glycols.

Other power golfers present included Jeff Langenbach, Timothy F Daniels, William Cook, Ajay Lal, Mukesh Aghi, Manu Anand, Mehul Patel, Arvind Goenka and Bharat Tandon.
