Playgolf bets that Monty's men will 'Spank the Yanks'
September 20, 2010

'Uncle Sam' is backing the USA, but UK golf course and driving range operator Playgolf is gambling on a European victory in the Ryder Cup – with thousands of pounds at stake if Monty's team fails to win.

The biennial Europe vs USA Ryder Cup is once again set to thrill the golfing public from October 1st-3rd. Playgolf's special 'Spank The Yanks' offer means that any purchase of range balls or green fees made at Playgolf Manchester and London's Playgolf Northwick Park during the promotional period of Friday 24th September and Thursday 30th September will be matched by Playgolf if the US team retains the Ryder Cup.

Golfers are instructed simply to keep their receipt, and to present it to Playgolf if the USA team retains the Cup. They will receive like-for-like for their purchase on the driving range and golf course.

So if a golfer buys a bucket of 100 golf balls or a round of golf at Playgolf in either Manchester or London from 24th to 30th September, he or she can claim a further free 100 balls or a free round of golf if Pavin's USA team thrashes Montgomerie's twelve Europeans.

Playgolf's Craig Whitfield said: "We are so confident that Monty's men won't take a whipping from the Yanks this year, that we're willing to take the risk of paying out a small fortune to our customers if they do!

"It's a win-win situation for golfers. If Europe wins the Ryder Cup, we will all be ecstatic, and if the USA beats the Europeans, golfers can claim a freebie from Playgolf and ease the pain of losing!"

The same period is also a "Winning Week" so anyone can be a Ryder Cup winner at Playgolf Manchester and Playgolf Northwick Park. All you have to do is find a red ball in your basket and claim an on the spot prize.

All purchases are valid until 31 December 2010.
