TGI Golf members, guests and leading figures from the golf industry attending the three golf days, held in England, Scotland and Ireland, raising a combined total of £1,646 for the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, which took great care of Srixon/Cleveland Golf’s Paul Bradshaw, whose life was tragically cut short recently by cancer.

Eddie Reid, TGI Golf managing director, said: “Paul was an extremely well liked figure in the golf industry and we were all terribly saddened by his death. We have raised this money to aid those who supported him during his illness.”

The three golf days held at The Lambourne, Dunbar and Royal Dublin Golf Clubs saw some great golf and even a hole-in-one.

James Whitely, pro at Temple Golf Club, Maidenhead, scored a hole-in-one at the par-3 17th at The Lambourne. Unfortunately for him it wasn’t on the 5th, which would have netted him £35,000 towards a brand new Mercedes car.

Eddie Reid added: “The TGI Golf Days have become permanent fixtures in a lot of people’s calendars. They give us, as a group, the perfect opportunity to say thank you to our members and to our accredited suppliers. It is always a great day out, with some fantastic prizes on offer and once again I would like to thank those suppliers who donated prizes, as well as to the TGI Golf team for organising three great events.”
