AN EVENING with golfer Tony Jacklin CBE will be held at the Regent Theatre, Christchurch on Thursday, October 9 at 7.30pm.

It will be hosted by snooker supremo and golfing nut Willie Thorne.

Tony is arguably the powerhouse behind European golf and was responsible for engineering the greatest sporting revolution of the 20th century. He inspired a generation of golfers including Sir Nick Faldo, Sandy Lyle MBE, Seve Ballesteros etc as well as many of today’s stars such as Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Justin Rose.

There will be chance to catch up with Tony’s thoughts on British Golf today and his soft shoe shuffle on Strictly Come Dancing.
