John Letters Support Your Golf Travel On Their 300 Mile Walk For Seve

08/08/2012  
John Letters of Scotland, the equipment brand with 94 years of clubmaking history, were honoured to lend their support to Your Golf Travel and their 300 mile walk from London to Lytham in aid of the Seve Ballesteros Foundation.

Not only did Managing Director John Andrew join Ross Marshall from Your Golf Travel and his ‘Walk for Seve’ team for the latter stages of their walk to Lytham, but he also donated Ross his very own set of John Letters clubs to carry as part of the fundraising exercise.

“We were delighted to help our friends at Your golf Travel. Ross and Andrew are friends of mine and together we are working hard to raise funds for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation and Cancer research UK. Their efforts walking from London to Lytham are nothing short of incredible” said John Andrew.

Ross Marshall, one of the founders of Your Golf Travel.com, was part of a the ‘Walk for Seve’ team that walked more than 40 miles for seven days in memory of the three-time Open champion – carrying a John Letters golf bag full of JL clubs the entire time.

“Arriving at Royal Lytham & St Annes for The Open after walking from London was an amazing feeling. The team has worked so hard through some very tough conditions – just the way Seve would have wanted it! I couldn't think of a better way to commemorate such a legendary and cherished golfer than by finishing where he memorably twice won the Open Championship” said Marshall.

“I would like to express my thanks to personally thank John Andrew, John Letters and all the venues and other sponsors, for helping make this challenge possible as well as all the donations we have received so far. Together we can raise awareness of brain cancer and help further the vital research being done.”

And to top things off, Ross and his team had enough energy left once they arrived at Lytham to get the get John’s personal set of John Letters Master Model irons signed by former Open Champions – Tiger woods, Darren Clarke, Tom Watson, David Duval and Ben Curtis amongst others. These will be auctioned as part of the Seve Day grand final in October 2012 in aid of the Seve Ballesteros Foundation.
