Players, all of whom have to be under 18 years of age on the 1st January 2012 with a maximum 16 handicap to qualify, will get rare one-on-one time with Ian as he tours the course to give hands-on professional guidance to each player, as well as top tips and practical advice during the afternoon's 'IJP Clinic'.

Entries will close at midnight on 22nd June, with the winner announced on 2nd July.
Ian, who has been the International Touring Pro at Woburn for over nine years, sees the event as a chance to encourage the next generation of golfers and is passionate about giving them the opportunity to play on a championship course under championship conditions.
Ian states, "It's always such a special day to be able to get some of the best junior golfing talent together and give them an opportunity I never had.
"I love being out on the course with the kids, being able to chat with them and seeing their genuine enthusiasm for the game.
"It's a great experience for the juniors, a really refreshing day for me and one I look forward to every year."
Each player will have their photograph taken with Ian as a personal memento of their day, as well as receiving a fabulous goody bag, including an item from the IJP Design range, Ian Poulter Invitational accessories specially created for the day by PRGolf and a pair of Oakley sunglasses.
Prizes will be awarded for the best gross and net scores, with the top spots last year taken by 2011 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year, Lauren Taylor and Scott Edwards, as well as special 'Best Dressed' and 'Best Haircut' awards.
Youngsters will also have the opportunity to win a host of exciting additional prizes from Cobra-Puma Golf, EA Sports and IJP Design and the chance to enter a competition in Woburn Golf Club's brand new Performance Centre, which opened 17th April and boasts the latest GC2 launch monitor and simulator technology providing custom fitting, ball fitting, nearest the pin/longest drive challenges, practice option and the chance to play one of 37 top class golf courses in simulator mode.
