Hampshire Golfers tee off the Champion of Champions Tournament


The best club golfers in Hampshire will go head-to-head at Old Thorns Golf Club later this month in the Golf World-Jameson Champion of Champions event.

The event takes place on Monday 18th June and is the regional qualifier for the Golf World-Jameson Champion Of Champions tournament, where up to 1,000 current club champions fight it out for the title of best club golfer in Britain. Taking place at Old Thorns - a beautiful parkland course in Hampshire, it simply exudes luxury. The same firm that owns The Old Course Hotel at St Andrews runs the hotel.

"Only five golfers will get through to the final, at Woodhall Spa, on August 16-17, so competition will be really tough, and only the most skilled, most mentally-tuned players will make it," said Golf World Editor Steve Prentice.

Golf World is working with Jameson, 'the number one Irish whiskey', to create the Champion Of Champions competition because both parties felt that the UK lacked a high profile competition for traditional clubs, which is the game’s heartland. James Slack, Marketing Manager of Jameson, said "I am looking forward to seeing the very best club golfers in Scotland competing for a place in the final at Woodhall Spa in August. Jameson are delighted to be involved with such a high profile Amateur event - best of luck to all."

The event will be supported by equipment manufacturers TaylorMade who will ensure the champions driving is on up to scratch by giving them the opportunity to test the TaylorMade 300 Series Drivers, the number one driver in the professional game .
