Money raised at British Masters to support junior golfers

The Golf Foundation benefited from more than £25,000 in its role as the European Tour’s Official Charity of the British Masters supported by Sky Sports at The Grove.

Frenchman Alexander Levy starred in the Hero Challenge under floodlights on Tuesday evening, winning the one-hole knockout contest, with proceeds going to the Foundation’s HSBC Golf Roots programme that helps young people from different backgrounds to enjoy the benefits of golf.

Other initiatives included the Mega Putt Challenge, where spectators were given three attempts to hole a 56-foot putt, while the ISPS Handa Pressure Putt Showdown provided another great contribution. A ‘Hit the Green’ competition and a Daily Draw all helped the Golf Foundation which wishes to thank everyone who supported these activities. 

The highlight of the week was Soomin Lee’s hole-in-one at the 13th on Friday. This secured a £10,000 donation for the Foundation, courtesy of hole-in-one sponsors Hero Motocorp.
