Former Masters champion Ian Woosnam OBE has been confirmed to play in the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship 2012 at Nailcote Hall.

The Ryder Cup stalwart will join his former skipper, Tony Jacklin, as they compete for the coveted 2012 Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship trophy on August 7-10.

Woosnam is one of the most successful European golfers of the last 50 years, and the Welshman is a welcome addition to the 2012 Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship line-up. 

“Ian Woosnam playing at this year’s event reflects the ongoing ambition of the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship to be one of the biggest
events on the golfing calendar,” said managing director of event organiser Champions (UK) Plc, Matthew Hayes.

Since turning professional in 1976, Woosnam has been successful in every decade of his near 40-year career.

In his first season on the Senior Tour, Woosnam made history by becoming the only player to win both the European Tour Order of Merit and the European Senior Tour Order of Merit in his career.
