COULD YOU HOLE THE PUTT TO WIN THE RYDER CUP?
PUTT FOR THE CUP ON MICHELOB’S
19TH HOLE PUTTING CHALLENGE

 

You may have watched it on TV, you may have seen it in the flesh, but could you have holed the putt Sam Torrance did to win the 1985 Ryder Cup at The De Vere The Belfry?  Now’s your chance to find out…  Michelob, Official 19th Hole and beer to the 2001 Ryder Cup, has launched a putting challenge from may 10, 2000 in search of the UK’s best putter and the winner at each tournament will win a luxury golfing break.

The Michelob 19th Hole Putting Challenge recreates the 1985 Ryder Cup-winning putt on a 20ft replica of the Brabazon Course’s 18th hole green at The De Vere Belfry.  It gives golfers the opportunity to try the putt for real on a computer-aided reproduction of the green which will evoke years and years of priceless golfing memories.

Visiting up to four locations during the Summer 2000, Michelob’s 19th Hole Putting Challenge made its first appearance at The Benson and Hedges International Open 10th – 14th May 2000.

At each location, the best putter will win a luxury golfing break at their choice of one of eleven destinations across the UK from De Vere Hotels and Leisure Limited, including The De Vere Belfry, venue for the Ryder Cup 2001.  All you need to enter is a ticket to the tournament playing host to the challenge, then look out for Michelob’s 19th Hole Putting Challenge and enter for free! (All entrants must be aged 18 or Over).

If you missed out on the Benson and Hedges International Open you can catch the putting Challenge at the Compaq European Grand Prix, Slaley Hall, Northumberland, June 22 – June 25.  Confirmation of further venues to be visited by the Michelob 19th Hole Putting Challenge will be announced soon.
