As you know this is the week all of you golfers have been waiting for, the week the season kicks off for real, its the US Masters! Whilst we are all still crying into our pints that again we aren't seeing the undisputed king of Augusta Tiger Woods again this year we at Bunker have some very exciting news of our own that will hopefully make up for it! Our man and PGA Professional Fred Jewsbury will be there!
Fred recently joined the roster of PGA professional players at Bunker Mentality, and he is proud to be wearing the brand for the 2017 season. In his own words “he loves being unapologetically bold”.
Now whilst you grab your phones/ipads to look up Fred’s odds of winning the Masters unfortunately you wont find him listed, Fred has been playing golf since the age of 14 and had a stunning amateur career before moving up to the professional ranks where he has become a regular leaderboard topper on the Midland region PGA circuit. Winning countless events most recently the 2016 winter order of merit, so this kid can play a bit!
So where and why have we got Fred at the Masters this year well it goes back to when he was 17 and a young 12 year old future Ryder Cup Star and 3 time European tour winner Andy Sullivan befriended Fred who duly took the young upstart under his wing. The Pair have been inseparable ever since, whilst Andy and Fred’s careers have gone on different paths Andy has always kept Fred in his inner circle. So this week Andy is paying Fred back for his loyalty by giving him the incredible honour of Caddying for him in the Masters par 3 competition.
Fred is beside himself with excitement not only to be caddying but also to just be going to Augusta and seeing the Masters for the first time, he will be staying at Andy’s rented home for the week with him, his family and entourage!
He hopes to hit the tee shot at the 9th as we wouldn’t want Andy winning the par 3 would we! just to remind you no player has ever gone on to win the coveted green jacket after winning the par 3 contest!
So keep an eye out for Fred on Wednesday(he’ll be wearing a Bunker Mentality who’s your caddy t-shirt under the famous white boiler suit), in addition he will be tweeting and sending behind the scenes pictures of the week all week so follow us on Twitter and Facebook as well as checking back here for updates and exciting news!
GOOD LUCK FRED FROM ALL AT BUNKER MENTALITY... PS. AND GOOD LUCK TO ANDY SULLIVAN, WE MAY BE HAVING A CHEEKY FIVER ON YOU FOR THE GREEN JACKET!
