British Masters returns to Woburn

Published:

After a lengthy absence, the British Masters is back on the European Tour calendar.

The prestigious event – supported by Sky Sports – will return in October on the Marquess course at Woburn with a quartet of Britain’s leading golfers (Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald & Justin Rose) rotating as tournament host over the next four seasons.

England’s finest foursome will each take it in turn to host the British Masters, last played in 2008, and will help to select the venue each year.  

First up will be 12-time European Tour winner Poulter, who will take the British Masters back to Woburn  – the club with which he has a long-term association – from October 8-11, increasing the number of Race to Dubai events on British soil this year to seven.

Sais Poulter: “It is fantastic news that the British Masters is back on the European Tour schedule and I am proud and delighted to be bringing the tournament to Woburn, which is obviously a place that means a great deal to me.

“British golf has been in a good place for a number of years now with the success we have had internationally, and as players we have all been keen to get more tournaments on British soil, specially in England.”

It will be the 17th time that Woburn has hosted the Masters and the first occasion since 2002, the year that Rose memorably pipped his close pal Poults to the title after finishing in style with a 65.

No doubt the host club favourite will be eager to turn the tables at the end of the season!

The Marquess is one of three stunning layouts at Woburn which is expected to attract a star-studded field who will battle it out for a £3m prize fund. 

Catch all the action on Sky Sports from the 8th to the 11th of October 2015.
