Wilson Back New Amateurs' Event


Wilson have teamed up with the Scottish Tourist Board to stage a new 72-hole amateur tournament with the aim of attracting an international field of golfers.

The Ayrshire Golf Classic will take place between July 10-13, during the week before the Open, and is expected to attract entries from Europe and America as well as the United Kingdom.

Angus Moir, business director for Wilson Golf, said: "We are delighted to support an event that will raise the profile of Ayrshire golf and benefit companies based there."

The firm, whose customer services headquarters are based in the region, will supply prizes for the tournament and stage demo days for golfers to try their equipment, including the latest Fat Shaft clubs and Smart-Core balls.

The event, to be played under a Stableford format, will be staged at four courses - the Ailsa at Turnberry, Barassie, Irvine Bogside and Belleisle - and will involve teams of four players.
