“The Golf & Health Project is a fantastic idea and I am proud to be able to support the work they’re carrying out.
“My health and fitness is something I care very strongly about and is an important part of my life.

“The Golf & Health Project is a great idea and I am really looking forward to being involved as we learn more about how golf is beneficial for everyone, not just tour or elite players.

This is the same for anyone out there – there are so many positive reasons to play golf and I am interested to see how the Project identifies and proves these academically.”
“I am really happy to be supporting the Golf & Health Project. To me the benefits of our sport are clear so it is really interesting to be able to back them up with hard evidence.
“Being a fitter, healthier golfer on the course has helped me to continually improve my own game and I think golf is perfect for getting people active and healthy both in body and in mind.
“Through my off-course work with my local community I also know how important health and wellbeing can be on the development of kids, so anything that can help us to understand more about how to create healthy, well-rounded people is something I can get behind.”
