888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour goes HD

November 28th, 2012

The 888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour goes HD for the first time this week as highlights from the season-ending Tour Championship at Woburn air on Sky Sports HD.

The two-hour highlights package from the event features not only the fight for the £15,000 winner’s cheque but also a gripping battle between Scotsmen Wallace Booth and Elliot Saltman for a place in the Order of Merit top five and the Challenge Tour card that comes with it.

The autumn colours of Woburn’s Marquess’ Course in superb condition look stunning in HD, and Paul Maddy played one of the shots of the season in a turbulent final round for the Englishman.

The show airs on Sky Sports HD this Wednesday at 3:30pm with repeats at 8pm as well as at 1am and 3pm on Thursday.

888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour Director of Operations Daniel Godding has also confirmed a visit to The Oxfordshire as part of the 2013 schedule.

“We are really excited to be putting the show out in HD. This isn’t a one-off for the Tour Championship, we will continue to film with more cameras and all in high definition throughout 2013.

“We are really stepping up the quality of the TV production as part of our wider vision to ensure the PGA EuroPro Tour is the best satellite tour in Europe.

“We already know we have the very best young golfers playing on the Tour and it is important we give them everything they need to go on and be the Ryder Cup stars of the future.

“Part of that is taking the Tour to some of the best and most challenging courses in the UK.

“We are in discussions with some exciting new venues to join some old favourites in 2013 and I am delighted to say that The Oxfordshire will be hosting an event next summer.

“More new courses are still to come and adding them to the list of top-quality regular host venues such as Bovey Castle and Burhill, which always receive great praise from our golfers, will ensure we continue to progress the quality of the Tour.”
