Congratulations from all at Buzzin Media got to amatuer golfers Chris Hughman & Nick Blunt who have been selected to benefit from the innovative European Tour Performance Institute Amateur Programme before the ‘experience of a lifetime’ teaming up with a leading European Tour player during the 2011 Portugal Masters Pro-Am.
Chris Hughman, from Epping in Essex, and Nick Blunt, from Sevenoaks in Kent, will experience exclusive golf performance and health analysis, previously enjoyed only by Europe’s elite professionals, following the tie-up between Europe’s largest golf travel company and the Tour Fit for Golf Amateur Programme.
The programme, powered by Tour Fit for Golf, is designed to help recreational golfers of any standard, such as Chris and Nick, reach peak levels in golf and health performance.
This true ‘money-can’t-buy’ experience will include privileged and exclusive access to elite Tour players such as Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Alvaro Quiros, as well as Europe’s top coaches, such as JJ Rivet and Simon Holmes, for 1-2-1 and video tuition and training, as well as the Tour’s health experts.
The lucky duo – who will receive regular progress reviews at top Golfbreaks.com venues – are to be formally unveiled when the programme is officially launched at The Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, on the eve of The Celtic Manor Wales Open on May 31.
IT analyst Chris Hughman, a 32-year-old who plays off a 12 handicap, said: “This will be an amazing golf experience – I’m champing at the bit! One of the reasons I signed up was to take advantage of the fitness offering – not only that, the coaching is the best in the business and if I can’t get down to a single-figure handicap after this I never will!”
Nick Blunt, 40, a business and sales development manager who plays off 11, commented: “It’s the ultimate prize, offering an amateur like me top-level coaching he wouldn’t normally have access to and which will help take my game to the next level. My target handicap is eight but I would love to get down to six.”
Highlights of the itinerary for the five-month programme include:
- May 31 and June 1 – Launch of programme at The Celtic Manor Resort, Wales
- July 3 – Progress review at The London Club, Kent
- August 5-6 – Progress review at Aa Saint-Omer Hotel du Golf, Northern France

Timothy Dodd, CEO of Tour Fit for Golf, commented:
“This will be an experience of a lifetime for Chris and Nick, and will prove that it is not just the world’s elite players who can benefit from a structured coaching and fitness programme to help lower their scores.”
