The lush fairways of Foxhills’ Bernard Hunt course provided the perfect location for the inaugural IFX x Winged Boots Championship as part of the PGA EuroPro Tour. With beaming sunshine throughout, unparalleled hospitality from Foxhills’ and 116 golfers (including 29 professionals), we had all the ingredients needed for a great day of golf.

Inviting 25 of Winged Boots’ top golfing customers along with five members of staff – including managing director David Ox – the IFX x Winged Boots Championship Pro-Am provided a great day for everyone to network with one another and enjoy 18-holes in the summer sun. “I want to start by thanking everyone involved in the IFX x Winged Boots golf day. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from all of Winged Boots’ customers and cannot thank the staff at Foxhills and those involved from the PGA EuroPro Tour enough for their hospitality and enthusiasm in the run up to – and during – the event,” David said. “Some special thanks also go to Barry Hearn for hosting the prize giving at the end of the event and to Daniel Godding for organising everything from tee times to golf towels.”

As part of the PGA EuroPro Tour, the Pro-Am kicked off the official three-day event. Chief Executive of the tour, Daniel Godding, said: “We loved hosting the IFX x Winged Boots Golf Day and Pro-Am at the wonderful Foxhills Golf Club in July. The PGA EuroPro Tour is now the largest developmental golf tour in the world, broadcasting to 407 million homes around the globe. We recognise Winged Boots as a high quality international brand and feel the synergy between the companies worked perfectly. Our professionals certainly gave all the clients a fabulous day and a few tips to improve their game.”

Co-sponsor IFX Payments’ director Simon Hughes added: “On behalf of IFX and our clients who attended, we must start by thanking the Europro Tour for organising such a fantastic day at the stunning Foxhills Golf Club. The course was fantastic, and those who played in the event have given such positive feedback. The joint venture with Winged Boots opens up access to each other’s clients and outlines the synergies our clients have with each of our businesses. Finally, we must thank the Pro’s for putting up with some shambolic golf from the amateurs, and commend the ability that they possess, particularly in this case David Coupland who smashed the course record on two occasions.”

Congratulations again to our winners including pro Dave Coupland who scooped first place with a score of 10-under-par. Richard Mansell clocked in at second with a score of five-under-par and Will Roebuck and John-Ross Galbraith came in joint third with four-under-par. 
For the overall Pro-Am, one of Winged Boots’ teams came in third. Congratulations to Rich Watling, TJ Long and Justin Widdowson who were accompanied by John-Ross Galbraith. Second spot was awarded to Paul Miller, Steve Lomas and Ian Fraser who were headed up by pro Luke Jackson while the overall winners were Adam Sheldrake, Gil Lewis and Ges Sheldrake with pro Dave Coupland at the helm.

Thanks again to everyone who was a part of the IFX x Winged Boots Championship Pro-Am. We look forward to playing gold with you all again next year, and for those who are interested in any other Winged Boots: The Extra Mile events, please register your interest on our events page, here.
