UK Golf Show to stage Open Long Drive Championship

7.52am 28th March 2008 - Exhibitions & Conferences

The UK Golf Show in association with the Long Drivers of Europe (LDE) have announced the first UK Open Long Drive Championship at the UK Golf Show, Whittlebury Park 10 – 13th April 2008

The competition, open to players of all abilities and ages, professionals and amateurs, will be joined by several of Europe’s biggest hitters. These include the reigning Open Division Champion Patrik Andersson and ex-PGA tour player Johan Tumba, both from Sweden. Other tour players are expected to sign up for this event which is expected to attract huge crowds.

Neil Hodgson from Long Drivers of Europe said, “”Patrik, a multi-winner in the European series regularly blasts balls over 400 yards. His swing speed and power has to be seen to be believed. LDE are delighted to have the support of Top-Flite who are using this competition to launch the new Top-Flite ‘Freak’ ball”.

Everyone is welcome to peg it up and the top players in four divisions; Open, Ladies, Seniors (+45) and Juniors will win daily prizes courtesy of Top-Flite. The top four each day in the Open division plus the top two in the Seniors and Ladies will qualify for the knock-out rounds on Sunday afternoon for the UK Open Champion title.

Tickets to the UK Golf Show are available in advance from Ticketmaster at £12.50 or on the door at £17.50. Further details can also be found on the show’s website www.theukgolfshow.co.uk
