Zone Golf's World Launch last weekend saw Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley secure the title  with celebrity partner Jamie Redknapp at Dukes Meadows, Surrey.  They beat Ian Poulter and Sir Steve Redgrave in the final.  Nearly 2000 fans descended on Chiswick to enjoy the day.
McGinley collected £100,000 for his nominated charity, the Tour Players Foundation.  He said: “It’s been a wonderful day, we couldn’t have asked for more. The crowds have come out, the sun has been shining and I’ve won a lot of money for the Tour Players Foundation.  All the guys who have taken part have been wonderful and I can’t wait to come back and defend my title with Jamie next year!”

Team-mates Tim Henman and Justin Rose finished in third place, while Paul Lawrie and Andrew Strauss took fourth spot. Poulter, Rose and Lawrie still walked away triumphant as they secured £50,000 for each of their chosen charities.  The event is scheduled to be shown on Sky Sports 2 on June 4 at 8pm.
