As winner of the Gold Division (with a score of 39 Stableford points), Uri Eilan was crowned 2015 Tournament Champion. He received a surprise package of Under Armour products courtesy of Volvo. More importantly, Eilan also received an airline ticket to Shanghai, China, where he will represent Israel in the 2016 Volvo Challenge Tournament to be held next January.
