Our ambassador, Ryder Cup legend Bernard Gallacher, has been helping to lift lockdown spirits with a host of video calls to Golf Care policyholders!
Bernard carried out the calls from his home, where he spoke one-to-one with some of our policyholders, providing some much-needed cheer to older golfers – many of whom have already been in self-isolation for over two months.
The ex-pro chatted to fans for around 30 minutes, during which time they waxed lyrical about a broad range of topics, from indoor putting tips to memories of tournaments gone by.
Commenting on his surprise, 77-year-old Dave Fawkes from Southport said: “That was absolutely brilliant! Bernard was such a friendly man with an amazing depth of knowledge. It really cheered me up. I hope that hearing about our conversation helps to do the same for some other golf players, too.”
Bernard added: “Times are tough at the moment for everybody – but perhaps more so for the older generation, who may have been stuck indoors for quite a while now. So, it was great to catch up with these gents about all things golf and life under lockdown to bring some excitement to their day. I was happy to hear they all enjoyed it, too. It’s evident that we’re all looking forward to getting back on the course (including me)!”
Bernard has been carrying out calls as part of our Great Golf Giveaway – an exclusive competition open to our policyholders.
The giveaway includes prizes such as a 5-night golfing holiday to Spain and access to top-class coaching from Bernard himself. Plus a range of golfing merchandise. Click here to find out more.
