TEAM LOWE WINS BRISTOW GOLF CLASSIC
By John Lowe, Jan 30 2016 12:09PM
When dart players are not darting many of them are golfing, I have my own golf classic on the Island of Tenerife that has been running for 11 years and raised many thousand of pounds for charity, Eric Bristow has been a regular player and supporter for almost every one, last year he was asked if he would put his name to a golf day to raise funds for the Tenerife Lions, it is held at Las Palos a par 3 course that is a dificult test for all players, yesterday was the second year of the event, team Lowe consisting of Ged Bolten, Jimmy Robertson, Andy Philips and mysef scored a total of 132 points which was enough to win the event, can you imagine the presentation, Eric Bristow presents the trophy to his old adversary on the Oche "Stoneface" John Lowe, simply priceless, after the presentation we where entertained with some fine singing from members of the audience, to make the golfing day a darting success Dennis Priestly and Kevin Spielok made an appearance, I can tell you the cameras flashed for a long time,a superb day with some great friends old and new, Sabastian St James have become sponsors of both Eric's day and my own, and I am pleased to announce they have agreed to be part of my golf day in the UK, "Scotty's Little Soldiers" in rememberance of Lee Rigby, date and course to be announced in February. Team Lowe will be back to defend their title in 2017.
