Air Force Golf is set to be unleashed on the golfing world in the coming weeks and months. The brainchild of Marrtin Gerardo, it is an inventive way of enabling those who are physically unable to swing a golf club the chance to play the game.

Using an air pressured cylinder to fire the ball anything from 300 yards to as little as a few feet the disabled, and able-bodied too, are able to enjoy a round of golf without slowing the pace of play for other players on the course.

Leading trick-shot entertainer Jeremy Dale has raised a massive £15,000 for the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign, after hosting a charity fundraiser at his home club of Stapleford Park Country House Hotel and Sporting Estate.

The 33-year-old hosted the John Dale Memorial Charity Golf Day, in memory of his late father, and over 150 guests enjoyed an 18-hole competition, followed by one of Jeremy?s trademark trick-shot exhibitions.

In the evening a number of exclusive items were auctioned off as well, including a pair of weekend tickets to the 2008 US Masters at the Augusta National.

?This was a successful first attempt at event management for me, and I was pleased to bring so many people to Stapleford for a great cause. Plans have already started for next year?s event,? said Dale.


The Walker Cup begins in earnest on September 8th and tickets are now on sale for the illustrious amateur event at Royal County Down in Northern Ireland.

An adult ticket will cost £25 per day, but there will be concessions for under-16s costing just £10.

?We have limited the daily attendance to ensure that it remains comfortable for spectators to follow the match of their choice round the course. We are anticipating a large and enthusiastic local support as Great Britain and Ireland attempt to regain the Walker Cup.?

?I would therefore advise intending spectators to apply for tickets as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment of being unable to watch the match,? said David Hill, the Director of Championships for The R&A.
