Practice makes perfect

Preparations are well under way by the challenger team aiming to upset the odds in round two of this year’s Ryder Cup style GMF Cup Challenge, a charity golf event taking place at Quinta do Logo in September.

The team, which brings together individuals from businesses working in all areas of the door and window industry, took the opportunity recently to play a practice day at the Astbury Golf Course in south Cheshire. They will play the incumbent champions, Team GMF, in the GMF Cup.

This biannual event is organised to replicate the famous battle between the USA and Europe while – most importantly – raising much-needed funds for Hope House Children’s Hospices, which support terminally ill children and their families.

Team Challenger’s practice was an essential part of the preparations ahead of what looks set to be a superb fundraising golf event according to David Furness, managing director of Rapierstar, who organised the practice day for Team Challenger at his local club.

David said: “We’re all delighted to be taking part in the GMF Cup Challenge this year, and to be able to play our part in raising funds for charities that do such amazing work. But we also want to give it our best shot when we tee-off and, as with any great team effort, part of that is proper preparation and practice. Getting everyone in the Team Challenger together at Astbury proved just the trick, and we’re ready to go into September’s event to win.”
