The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship is just around the corner and some of its players have been on great form leading into one of the biggest tournaments on the British golfing schedule.
The £100,000 prize fund Pro-Am element of the 4 day extravaganza at Nailcote Hall in Warwickshire, welcomes professionals such as 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie, Ryder Cup legends Peter Baker, David Gilford and Phillip Price amongst others and fresh faced young professionals making their way in the world of professional golf such as Callum Shinkwin and Max Orrin. Added into the mix are a host of international players including Santiago Luna, Marc Farry, Tim Thelen, Larry Laoretti, Miguel Martin and Tony Johnstone. Also this year the event welcomes five female professionals to battle it out with the men for the main £25,000 prize, Amy Boulden, Charley Hull, Kelsey MacDonald, Carly Booth and Alex Peters.
In preparation for the Par 3 Championships some of the top professionals have been battling hard and working on their games on their respective tours in a bid to get match sharp. Amy Boulden took part in the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Turnberry this week and finished in a fantastic tied 9th position after rounds of 68 and 71 over the weekend in terrible weather conditions. Also in action was Callum Shinkwin who's closing round 66 on the European Challenge Tour was good enough for a seventh place finish. Congratulations to both Amy and Callum and we look forward to seeing them, and the other 54 professionals at Nailcote Hall next week.
