IT was par-tee time for Motherwell golfer Michael Kean after he won a charity golf event on the 2010 Ryder Cup course.
Celtic Manor in Wales was the venue for the Sue Ryder Care Cup and Michael and his golfing partner Terry Lafferty were first pair winners at the nationwide tournament.
Michael and Terry came out tops in the charity event that attracted 36 golfers from across Britain at the course where the European team will try to win back the Ryder Cup next year.
Michael said: “It was a great event, really well organised. I met some new golfing friends, spent a great day at Celtic Manor, and as for the 2010 course it’s one of the most challenging golf courses I have ever played.
“Concentration and good shot making would be the key to making a winning score on this course, and I think both Terry and I managed this admirably.
“The Sue Ryder Team did a fantastic job putting the day together and I would have no hesitation helping them in the future.
“As part of a large family, one of seven, I remember making some fine purchases from our local Sue Ryder Shop in Motherwell. The shop probably helped a lot of families from our area in its time.”
All the money raised through the event will help Sue Ryder Care continue providing expert and compassionate care to people living with complex conditions including cancer, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and acquired brain injury.
Terry commented: “I am so glad Michael asked me to be his golfing partner. It was a privilege to be able to play at Celtic Manor.
“The Sue Ryder Care team were marvellous. I felt really well looked after.”
