Golfers to spend 15 hours at Brokenhurst to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK
THREE golfers are embarking on a marathon golf challenge on Sunday to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
Adam Seal and Callum and Les Hicks are spending 15 hours on the green at Brokenhurst Golf Club, playing 72 holes and walking 26 miles. Adam’s father died from cancer and he has it himself, so the disease has had a huge impact on his family.
The men, all keen golfers, entered the charity’s ‘The Big Golf Race’, which challenged people to play either four or two rounds of golf in one day.
Adam, who runs A&J Butchers in Lymington, said: “I thought entering the challenge would be a great way to support something that sadly we know only too well about it in my family.”
He believes the trio will finish it in around 15 hours. Adam has a golf handicap of 28, while father and son duo Les and Callum, of Ampress Welding & Fabrication in Lymington, have 24 and 13 respectively.
Adam said: “We normally play golf together two times a week, but this will be a real test.
“We are starting at 6am and hope to start the last game around 5.20pm.
“We are hoping for good weather and it would be wonderful if we could get a few holes in one to cut down the time – but I’m not that hopeful!”
The men set a target of £3,000 and have already passed £2,500. Prostate cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK.
