Ian Woosnam OBE and Paul Lawrie OBE to star at the Farmfoods European Senior Masters

Two of Britain’s most acclaimed golfers will be in action at the upcoming Farmfoods European Senior Masters this October.

1991 Masters champion Ian Woosnam OBE and 1999 Open winner Paul Lawrie OBE will both be heading to the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club for the Staysure Tour event.

The championship will return for its third year between 3–6 October with Ian and Paul joined out on the course by a variety of Ryder Cup and European Tour winners including event host Peter Baker and last year’s champion Santiago Luna.

Between them Ian and Paul have a combined 37 wins on the European Tour but both are best known for their exploits in Major events.

For Ian this came in 1991 when he was victorious at the Masters in Augusta. As well as this, he captained Europe to Ryder Cup success in 2006 and has been inducted in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Paul was the winner of one of the most dramatic Open Championship feats of all time when he was victorious in 1999. After Jean van de Velde blew faltered on the final hole, Paul capitalised winning the play-off to clinch the win. This win made history as he came back from the largest third-round deficit of all time to win a Major after being 10 shots behind at the start of his round.

The pair will be hoping they’ll be the one to come out on top and scoop the €50,000 first prize.
