Forgan of St. Andrews to be Represented at De Vere Slaley Hall

De Vere Slaley Hall is located deep within the beautiful Northumberland countryside and is home to two of the most prestigious golf courses to be found in England.

Birmingham, United Kingdom, August 15, 2008 --( Selected to stage the next tournament on the European Seniors Tour, the PGA Seniors Championship, from 21st - 24th August, 2008. Ian Woosnam will represent Forgan of St. Andrews and will be competing to extend his order of merit lead which currently places the international legend ahead of Bernhard Langer.

Woosnam is looking for his third tour victory at Slaley Hall after success in Poland and Russia, with consistent performances at Royal Troon and Broadmoor (U.S. Seniors).

"I'm really looking forward to playing in one of the flagship events of the European Seniors Tour and it always adds something special when you're competing with friends at a great venue" Ian Woosnam (Source: Google News).

The De Vere Collection PGA Seniors Championship will be played on the internationally acclaimed Hunting Course – an official PGA Tour venue, and host to the Great North Open. The course spans 7,000-yards from its championship markers and carries a fearsome collection of holes.

Hunting Course demands exceptional skill and creativity to succeed. The course boasts one of the most testing par-4’s (hole 9) of the seniors tour - where players must pass-through enormous trees to the right and negotiate a stream which skirts left of the fairway. Despite a good tee-shot, players are faced with a long approach uphill to meet a sloped green.

De Vere will reunite the former Ryder Cup captain with four members of the winning team of 1987 – the historic year that saw Woosie and his team comprehensively beat America on their soil.

Ian Woosnam will be representing Forgan of St. Andrews at Slaley Hall – the world’s oldest golf brand who offer a full online custom fit service on their website:
