Golfers can help raise money in a charity golf 'grand slam' by playing with their pants or boxer shorts over their trousers!
Driving range operator TopGolf is staging a 'grand slam' at its Watford centre on Thursday June 25 to raise money for the Everyman Male Cancer Campaign.
Golfers will compete against the clock from 7pm to 9pm – with £5 of their £10 entrance fee being donated to the charity which raises awareness and funds research into testicular and prostate cancers.
TopGolf will donate the entire £10 entry fee for every player with pants or boxers over their trousers on the night.
The highest scoring player across TopGolf’'s three sites at Watford, Surrey and Chigwell will win a Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience at legendary race track Brooklands, followed by a top meal and overnight stay in a luxury hotel!
Millwall striker and Everyman ambassador Neil Harris, who recovered from testicular cancer after being diagnosed in 2001, is backing the 'grand slam'.
Harris said: "I'm delighted to hear that TopGolf are supporting the Everyman campaign throughout June.
"I hope the public come down and support the campaign... and wear their best pants for this fantastic cause!"
TopGolf Marketing Manager Michael Angelides said: "We're delighted to be supporting the Everyman campaign this month.
"We're sure the TopGolfers in Watford will join in with the fun and help raise cash for this vital cause."
The day is part of TopGolf's month of support for the campaign. For each game purchased throughout June, which is Everyman Male Cancer Awareness Month, TopGolf will donate 5p. Together, prostate and testicular cancers affect more than 36,000 men each year in the UK.
