We are delighted to be sponsoring leading blind golfer named William McAllister, at the World Championships in Australia
We are delighted to be sponsoring leading blind golfer named William McAllister, at the World Championships in Australia in 2014.
William lost his eyesight three years ago after contracting diabetes. He then started playing blind golf as a form of rehabilitation. At present, he is the highest ranked blind golfer in the England and Wales blind golf circuit.
More recently, he has been focusing on qualifying for the 2014 World Championships to be held in Australia and has been looking for sponsors to help him meet the costs of playing the UK and European and circuits.
Michael Jefferies, Managing Director of Jefferies Solicitors says, “We are delighted to announce that Jefferies will be sponsoring William McAllister for the forthcoming World Championships. We look forward to seeing him perform at this great competition and we could not have thought of a better way to show our support for him.”
William has won several awards since he started playing blind golf three years ago. His recent victories include the English Stroke Play Championships in July, the M.A.S.S sponsored Disabled Golf Championships in June, as well as the Royston Open for disabled golfers.
With qualification secured and his focus turning to the tournament next year, Mr. McAllister stated how happy he was for the sponsorship he has received so far. He said – “I am honoured to have been chosen for the forthcoming world golf championship in Australia. I take this opportunity to thank Jefferies for having sponsored me – it means so much.”
We would like to take this opportunity to wish William all the best of luck for his forthcoming tournament and are delighted to be sponsoring this worthy cause.
