Facing the same course layout as the 2002 Ryder Cup contest, including identical pin positions, Broad, a three-time Ashes winner, led his Belfry team to victory against a Village Hotels side headed up by England Test captain and fellow keen golfer, Root. The challenge match – which also followed Ryder Cup team scoring – saw Broad’s Belfry elect claim a thoroughly-competitive 4-2 win, with both teams featuring clients and VIPs from The Belfry and Village Hotels respectively.

As well as the team competition, the enthralling day incorporated an Official PGA Tournament Officer, who introduced the players onto the 1st tee, whilst a prizegiving afterwards saw Broad’s team presented with miniature replica Ryder Cup trophies.
The day finished with a drinks reception, BBQ and Q&A led by former Scottish rugby star Bryan Redpath. The event was also supported by Be The Stars Posters, including the provision of prestigious memorabilia.

“I love playing the Brabazon course,” added Broad. “Its layout makes you want to attempt tricky shots that you wouldn’t usually try, you end up taking the options the pros do and, when you get it right, there is no better feeling on a golf course; the 10th being a perfect example of this.”
