Golfalot Sponsors European Tour Player Chris Hanell

Golfalot is proud to announce that it will be sponsoring Swedish European Tour player, Chris Hanell for the next two years.

Chris has been on the European Tour for the past two years and has finished in the top 65 of the Order of Merit on both occasions. He recently got his season off to a great start with a top ten finish last week in the Sao Paulo Brazilian Open.

As part of the sponsorship Chris will carry the Golfalot.com logo on his golf bag. Golfalot have also created a web site for Chris at www.chrishanell.com that contains all the information about Chris that his fans will want to know.

Each week Chris will be updating the site with news from his latest tournament so that you can follow his progress around the world. In addition the site also includes details of his amateur and professional career, his 2001 tournament schedule and details of the equipment that Chris takes with him on Tour. The site went online at the beginning of March 2001 and many fans have already used it to contact Chris and ask him questions about life on Tour.

Chris is an avid internet user and is delighted to be representing Golfalot: "I am very excited about this sponsorship, because I will be able to communicate with my fans directly through the internet with the added credibility of the site being associated with the UK's leading golf site, Golfalot.com"

Martin Hopley, Managing Director of Golfalot is equally excited about the sponsorship: "Chris is a wonderful guy and a great golfer who has made a very promising start to his career and we are proud that he will be joining our other players (Justin Rose & Per-Ulrik Johansson) in Team Golfalot. There is a feeling that 2001 will be his breakthrough year and you will be able to follow these achievements first hand via ChrisHanell.com and Golfalot.
