McGinley In The Zone

Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley secured the title as Zone Golf Champion with celebrity partner Jamie at Dukes Meadows, Chiswick, for Zone Golf’s World Launch at the Zone Golf Charity Shoot Out. The pair beat Ian Poulter and five-time Olympic Gold Medalist Sir Steve Redgrave in the final, which saw nearly 2,000 fans descend upon the colourful par-3 course for the May Bank Holiday.

Paul McGinley, who walked away with £100,000 for his nominated charity, the Tour Players Foundation, said, “It’s been a wonderful day, we couldn’t have asked for more. The crowds have come out, the sun has been shining and I’ve won a lot of money for the Tour Players Foundation.

“I think it’s an excellent concept and one I can definitely see becoming a new generation of golf. It’s fun, fast paced and brings a do or die element to the game. All the guys who have taken part today have been wonderful and I can’t wait to come back and defend my title with Jamie next year!”

Playing partner Jamie Redknapp added, “I think I got the pick of the day, Paul was on fire, there was no stopping him and I felt I couldn’t let him down. We’ve had an amazing time and I can’t wait to play Zone Golf again – we will be back to defend our title next year!”

Team-mates Tim Henman and Justin Rose finished in third place, while Paul Lawrie and Andrew Strauss took the fourth. Poulter, Rose and Lawrie still walked away triumphant as they secured £50,000 for each of their chosen charities.
