American Golf piles on the ‘pressure’

American Golf piles on the ‘pressure’

AMERICAN GOLF is putting golfing celebrities under the spotlight with a new charity initiative.

Stars taking part in the Pressure Putt Challenge will have just 60 seconds to sink as many consecutive putts as possible, moving back two feet after each successful putt.  If they miss, then it’s back to the beginning.

For every two feet holed of their best score, American Golf will donate £20 to its charity, On Course Foundation.

Heading the leaderboard as this issue went to print was rugby’s Austin Healey with a calm and collected 12-foot putt.  Other stars to feature so far include Sir Tony McCoy, Charley Hull, Mike Tindall, Sir Ian Botham, Di Doherty, Peter Schmeichel and Denise Van Outen.

“The response we have had to the Pressure Putt Challenge has been  fantastic,” explains director of marketing and communications at American Golf, Daniel Gathercole. “Sports people are by nature really competitive, so people have been nominating one another to take part. We have some incredible names lining  up to take part in the Pressure Putt Challenge and we are really excited to see how much we can raise for On Course Foundation.”

If you think you have what it takes to beat the stars then head to one of the American Golf stores hosting the amateur Pressure Putt Challenge. The player with the best score at each of the 11 participating stores at the end of July will be invited to the Belfry in September to take part in the Grand Final in front of a live audience.
