Dan the Man... Wins Golf For Life

Golf for Life...
When was the last time you entered a prize draw for anything… and won? A car, a holiday, a cuddly toy… I once won a tee shirt when I was 14, and then a Sega Megadrive thing some 25 years later. My guess is that I’ve done better than 95% of the population when it comes to winning ‘free’ stuff.

Do you ever wonder if the whole
thing’s rigged? I’m not going to go all ‘Donald Trump’ on you… but when it comes to a prize as big as a car (or the US Presidency) we may believe that someone, somewhere is pulling the strings.

If Daniel Payne, a 24 handicapper from Dorset, once believed that he isn’t now! Daniel has won Golf for Life, thanks to GolfNow.com and Teeofftimes.co.uk, who were offering this remarkable prize to both Ireland and UK golfers.

There could be only one winner and his prize is a free fourball every month for the next 30 years – to be played on a choice of more than 1,200 courses across the British Isles, all featured on the GolfNow/Teeofftimes.co.uk websites

Brian Smith, Vice President of International Sales for GolfNow, said:  I would like to congratulate Daniel on his win and I hope he enjoys playing a wide range of courses throughout the UK and Ireland.  We knew that our competition would be popular but even we didn’t anticipate the vast number of entries that we received. It just goes to show that golf is becoming ever more popular as a sport and pastime.  Last year we supported 22.5 million rounds of golf booked in the UK and Ireland which equates to almost one every second.”

So the next time you see a competition/prize draw with loads of golfing goodies, stick your name in the hat and maybe you'll end up like Dan.
