Exclusive Footage From the ‘Putts For Charity Pro Challenge’ at the Portugal Masters


Some of the biggest names on the European Tour – including Lee Westwood, Miguel-Angel Jimenez, Ross Fisher, Thomas Levet and Graeme McDowell – left their rivalries behind on the course at this weekend’s Portugal Masters, to come together for the Genworth Financial ‘Putts For Charity Pro Challenge’.

Players compete against each other in the Challenge to secure not only the most single putts, but also the highest monetary donation - each player randomly selects a ball marked with a sum of money ranging from €1,000 - €10,000, and if the putt is successfully sunk, the amount is donated to charity partner SOS Children’s Villages.

The players also gave their thoughts from the event on next year’s Ryder Cup in Wales, the race to the Dubai World Championship, and on the recent announcement of golf’s return to the Olympic stage in 2016.
