Broome Manor to host Tiger Cup
6:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in Sport
BUDDING David Howells will today take to the fairways of Broome Manor in Swindon’s very own version of the Ryder Cup.
The Tiger Cup will feature two teams of eight players, all under 12, who will battle in a series of matches akin to the famous Europe versus USA clashes.
The competition will kick off Junior Golf Week which has been designed to give youngsters a fun introduction to the sport.
The Tiger Cup will see a foursomes competition in the morning and a singles format in the afternoon. Just like the real Ryder Cup, the teams will be split into team USA and team Europe.
Junior Golf Week will also feature an adult and junior nine-hole competition on Sunday, November 3, where juniors aged between six and 16 play alongside an adult. The children will hit the shots tee to green and the adults will do the putting.
There will also be paid-for golf camps for those aged between seven and 12, which will run on Tuesday and Thursday and are to include tuition, games and competitions.
Broome Manor pro Lee Hayward said: “Junior Golf Week is just one of the exciting events we hold for juniors during the year and it’s important for their development as it keeps up their motivation and excitement about playing golf.
“To be part of a team event like the Tiger Cup builds a great spirit amongst the young junior section.
“Events like this also bring back memories of when myself and a young David Howell (who twice won the Ryder Cup with Europe) used to play in similar events and had so much fun doing so. I’m really excited about the week and can't wait to see who will win the Tiger Cup.”
