Golf World-Jameson
Champion of Champions Final

Champions do battle on Lincolnshire’s premier course.

The elite of UK amateur club golf teed off last Friday in the final of the Golf World- Jameson Champion of Champions event at Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, the home of the English Golf Union.

A very strong field of fifty club champions battled it out having qualified for the final from the ten area finals held on some of the most testing and demanding courses throughout the UK. The eventual winner of the final – played on the Hotchkin Course - was Dion Stevens a plus 2 handicapper and the only Australian in a fifty player field.

Jameson, The Number One Irish Whiskey, have a long association with golf and alongside their co-sponsors Golf World Magazine, they were delighted to sponsor this event, which introduced a much needed high profile competition to find the UK’s Best Club golfer.

Jameson’s Marketing Manager James Slack commented, "Jameson is delighted to be sponsoring a nationwide series of events that supports top class amateur golf at grass roots level. Throughout the qualifying rounds the standard of the golf and the venues has been outstanding and the final has been no exception".

The Guest of Honour at the final was Great Britain & Ireland’s Walker Cup Captain Peter McEvoy, fresh back from the United States where his team made history just 5 days ago by retaining the Walker Cup for the first time on American soil.

Also in attendance was former European tour player Jim Payne whose ties with top class amateur golf in the region are strong having competed in the Walker Cup and won the Silver Medal at the Open Championship whilst representing Lincolnshire in the early 90’s.

In addition, competitors and spectators had the chance to try the most popular driver on tour, the Taylor Made 300 series, courtesy of associate sponsors Adidas-Taylor Made.
