Hi, my name is Jon Britchford and I am addicted to golf! Playing it, practicing it, watching it and talking about it.
To feed my addiction I am a member of Tilgate Forest Golf Club in West Sussex where I have been playing for three seasons. I play at least two times a week either in competitions or for fun with my mates. I also play in the Epsom Chamber of Commerce Society which is one of the oldest societies in the country. We play some of the best courses in the region and as a season finale every year 20 of us go to Marbella and play Ryder Cup over four days which is always eventful. All in all if there is a golf invitation going I will be there.
Being a member of Tilgate Forest has given me the opportunity to play in NAPGC events in which I have represented the club as part of a team or as an individual. This led to to the highlight of my golfing career so far last year, when after getting through several regional qualifiers, I got to the UK Public Golf Course national finals which was held at St Andrews where amazingly I won!
I was already looking forward to SS17 but being chosen to be an ambassador for Bunker Mentality has just blown me away. I have always had a passion for the clothing and equipment side of golf and as every golfer knows looking good makes you play good, right?? Well, even if this is not the case on the course at least you can look like a pro in the clubhouse. Here’s to a great season. @jonbford on instagram & twitter
