Lee Westwood Golf Tour teams up with Jamega Pro Tour!

The Westwood TourThe Lee Westwood Golf Tour is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership which will see the LWGT players compete to win places on the Jamega Pro Tour and the Jamega Pro Ladies Tour.

The Jamega Pro Tour established in 2004 as a player-led Professional Golf Tour, to bring openness and fairness to the world of developmental golf tours has sponsored 24 starts in its events for LWGT players to compete for.

Jamega has grown and developed on the philosophy of producing the right grounding and experience to benefit a future European Tour Player and this same ethos is shared by Lee Westwood Golf across its School, Tour and Camps brand providing a great fit for this new partnership.

The Lee Westwood Golf Tour manager Stuart said “I see the Jamega Pro Tour as a fantastic step towards a career as a tour player, it is a logical step for our young up and coming LWGT players to get the experience playing with and against professional golfers all striving for a full time playing career”

Lee Westwood’s stable mate at ISM David Howell said, "The Jamega Pro Golf Tour helped to run my inaugural Charity Golf Day. The day was a huge success, due in no small part to the professional and friendly manner in which Jamega organised the day.

"Having spoken to many of the guys who have played on the Jamega Pro Golf Tour they are equally as impressed. I would say that it's a great Tour to start your professional tournament career on.”

What better stepping stone is there for a want to be tour professional? The LWGT running its second year of competition is always looking for opportunities to help benefit its talented young golfers.

This year will see Lee Westwood attend the National finals; with the winner getting the opportunity to visit Lee’s School in Florida, and provides a fantastic opportunity for the best players to experience a professional tour event, what more could you ask for!
