Champions of Golf feature in European Tour Top 10 Moments

As 2014 hails the return of the iconic British Masters, this year to be hosted by European Tour star and Ryder Cup hero Ian Poulter at Woburn Golf Club, two of Champions of Golf's players feature among the Top 10 British Masters moments voted by the European Tour.

1993: Record Breaking Baker

Peter Bakers victory in 1993 was one of the most stunning displays the European Tour has ever seen. His fine golfing display from the first tee shot to the last putt at Woburn rightfully earned him the crown and title of British Masters Champion. Baker shot two of the rounds of the week including a second round 64 and a final closing round, a stunning 63 and his winning score of 266 - 22 under par - remains to this day as the lowest winning total in the tournaments history. Baker later said "I had one of those weeks where it all went very well”. “I played some great golf and it just all came together. My wife and my youngest daughter were there with me as well, which also helped to make it such a magical week.” 

1967: Golf's Most Iconic Shot 

In 1967 Tony Jacklin CBE won the British Masters title at Royal St George's by three strokes, a remarkable victory for a number of reason, firstly due to Tony firing a final round of 64 but most notably because Tony was the first person in history to record a hole in one live on British television. He aced the 165-yard 16th hole en route to victory with another perfectly struck iron shot, this time a seven iron, a shot that will go down in the history books and never be surpassed. 

This years event will take place between 8-11 October 2014 and as a past champions, Peter Baker will be attendance alongside new European Tour starlet Jason Palmer.
