Amateur tour to be televised on Sky Sports


The William Hunt Trilby Tour has announced its Regional Championship Venues this week in its search to find the next Amateur Golf Champion in a 12-part televised series on Sky Sports.

Created by Menswear Designer and golf aficionado William Hunt of Savile Row, the Trilby Tour aims to find the UK's top amateur golfer and give him a taste of true Pro stardom with a chance to play head-to-head against the big boys.

Players from all walks of life will get the chance to feel like a golf tour pro for a day as nine clubs from across England, Ireland and Scotland host the UK's biggest amateur televised golf tournament between May-August 2010.

Amateurs face a white-knuckle tournament in a thrilling one day 18-hole game in what is widely acclaimed to be golf's answer to Twenty20 cricket.

Players will be kitted out with everything they need for their experience of pro stardom; each receiving a complete William Hunt outfit, a Callaway Bag and Caddy Suit as part of their entry to the 12-part televised series on Sky Sports.

Each regional champion and 11 Runners-Up will go through to the Amateur Final held at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club on 11 August, culminating in an exciting three-hole play-off and a unique Winner Takes All Finale.

The top three finalists and regional champions will then be invited back on 12 August to play in the Sky Sports televised Professional Trilby Tour.

The Trilby Tour Amateur Champion will receive lessons with top coach David Leadbetter, an exclusive set of personalized clubs by Roger Cleveland of Callaway and the chance to play head-to-head against the top European Tour pros.
