LET Fantasy Golf winner
Henderson’s LET Fantasy Game ran a ‘September Special’ and the winner of a trip of a lifetime has been announced.
Henderson Global Investors today announced the winner of the ‘September Special’ promotional prize, in conjunction with the Ladies European Tour Fantasy Golf game.
Matt Cooper from Shropshire in the UK has won a once in a lifetime trip for two to Dubai, including four nights’ accommodation in a luxury Jumeirah hotel and VIP access to the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters.
LET Fantasy Golf players took part in the free to enter online competition and their cumulative scores from the four LET golf tournaments in September were combined to reveal Matt as the overall ‘September Special’ winner. Matt’s team ‘abcxyz’ topped the leader board a clear 82 points ahead of his nearest rival, team ‘Joe Falkner’.
Richard Wilson, Marketing Director at Henderson Global Investors said, “Having introduced the Fantasy Golf game to the LET we are now delighted to announce the winner of the September Special and to be sending an LET fan to the 2011 season finale in Dubai.”
Commenting on his win, Matt said, “I’m very excited to have won the LET Fantasy Golf September Special prize.
“It has been great fun to participate in and is a fantastic way to engage with the Ladies European Tour every week – during September I was glued to the leaderboard tracking the performance of my team.
“I’d like to thank Henderson for sponsoring the competition and also for the superb prize I’ve won. I can’t wait to travel to Dubai to play a bit of golf and then watch the Dubai Ladies Masters.
“I’m looking forward to some pre-Christmas sun and the opportunity to see the stars of the LET, including some of the winning European Solheim Cup team, play in the final event of the year.”
The four tournaments included in the ‘September Special’ were the Uniqa Ladies Golf Open in Austria (2 – 4 September), the Raiffeisenbank Prague Golf Masters in Czech Republic (9 – 11 September), the Open de España Femenino in Spain (15 – 18 September) and the Lacoste Ladies Open de France (29 September – 2 October).
The ‘September Special’ prize includes the following five star features: return flights for two people to Dubai, four nights’ accommodation at a luxury Jumeirah hotel, VIP Welcome Reception passes for Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, VIP hospitality passes for Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, a round of golf for two people at Dubai Creek Golf Club, and spending money of £500.
Aside from the ‘September Special’, the free to enter online Fantasy Golf game has a top prize of €25,000 available to be won each tournament week, click here to enter.
The Fantasy Golf game mechanic is simple: entrants select the six golfers at each LET tournament who they think will finish in the top six, in any order. If all top six finishers are correctly identified, the €25,000 jackpot will be won. There are also weekly prizes for the top three finishers, including a TaylorMade golf bag, box of Callaway balls, Hirzl gloves, PowerBalance pendants and SoftSpikes gift packs.
Henderson Global Investors also sponsor the Ladies European Tour’s Money List which will conclude at the Dubai Ladies Masters. Japanese star Ai Miyazato currently heads the list, with England’s Mel Reid and Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall in hot pursuit.
Hedwall is also one of Henderson’s three sponsored rookies – every year Henderson support three players who are starting out their careers. Hedwall has enjoyed a remarkable year, that includes three LET wins and a sparkling debut in the Solheim Cup.
The second rookie, Australia’s Stacey Keating, enjoyed a season’s best sixth place finish in last week’s Open de France, her seventh top 30 finish of the season.
The final rookie is America’s Jaclyn Sweeney whose best effort this year was a tie for 14th in the Turkish Ladies Open.
