Colin Montgomerie and Paul Casey will feature in the spectacular new global PowerPlay Golf series, further details of which will be announced at a press conference on 13 April, 2011.
Last year’s Ryder Cup winning captain Montgomerie and 11-time European Tour winner Casey are the first star players to sign up to play in one or more of the PowerPlay Golf (PPG) professional events that will be beamed live worldwide this year.
Backed by major investment from Convers Sports Initiatives (CSI), the three-hour tournaments will each feature 12 superstar tour golfers of all ages and both sexes.
PPG is a new short form of the game that will be played over nine holes, with two flags on every green. Golfers can score extra points by taking a limited number of ‘PowerPlays’ to the harder Black Flag, creating exciting risk-and-reward decisions on each tee.
Montgomerie and Casey will both be attending PowerPlay Golf’s press conference at The Celtic Manor Resort on 13 April, 2011, alongside PowerPlay Golf Chairman Ken Schofield CBE and Executive Director Peter McEvoy OBE.
Details of the new televised professional golf series will be revealed, as well as the date, field and location for its opening event and the strategy to roll the format out to club golfers around the world.
