Woosnam and Russell to Represent Forgan of St. Andrews at Lake Garda

Forgan’s Ian Woosnam and David J Russell have both confirmed attendance in the penultimate tournament of the European Seniors Tour 2008 season – to be staged at the Palazzo Arzaga Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort in Italy.

Birmingham, United Kingdom, October 09, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Woosnam is currently leading the Order of Merit by €12,788 ahead of rivals Bernhard Langer and third place Gordon J Brand – potentially sealing his maiden John Jacobs Trophy with one tournament remaining.

Woosie will be heading into the penultimate tournament of his debut season in the European Seniors Tour following consecutive victories at the Parkridge Polish Seniors Championship and Russian Seniors Open; with two runner-up finishes at The Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open and the Casa Serena Open staged for the first time in the Czech Republic.

The former winning Ryder Cup captain has also confirmed his intention of captaining the European Ryder Cup team in 2010 at Celtic Manor, Wales – his home country. Woosie previously lead Europe to an emphatic victory over America at the K Club in 2006.

The Masters champion commented, “I have put my name forward at the moment but all depends if Jose Maria Olazabal wants the job...” Woosnam continued, “...if he doesn’t want it, I feel I would like the chance to have another go.” Source: BBC News Online

Europe’s historic victory in 2006 was attributed to his excellent man-management and organisational skills – leading to Europe’s record third successive Ryder Cup victory. Woosnam and the entire golfing community in Europe await the final decision expected to be called early next year.
