Ian Woosnam will go down as one of the great golfers and Hi-Tec are extremely proud to count Ian as one of our sponsored players. His contributions to Golf and in particular the Ryder Cup are an outstanding achievement and Ian continues to excite crowds with his golfing talent.

Ian Woosnam was born on a dairy farm in Oswestry in Shropshire - just across the border - on 2nd March 1958. But even though he was born in England, his parents are both Welsh and he has always considered himself a Welshman.
Nicknamed Woosie, he was only seven years old when he took up his first club. He learnt to play in the local golf club of Llanymynech in Powys, where 15 of the holes are in Wales and three are over the border in Shropshire.

In 1987, he won a total of eight tournaments and topped the money list on the European Tour, becoming the first European to earn more than a million dollars in one season.

In 1988, he won the British PGA Championship. Three years and several more trophies later, he was ranked Number One in the world and a week later he was celebrating victory in one of the most prestigious tournaments in the golfing world - the 1991 US Masters title.

Some of his other big successes include the European Open (1988), the Scottish Open (1987 and 1990), the Irish Open (1988 1989), the Dunhill Cup (1985-1986, 1988-1991, 1993).

He has also played consistently in the PGA European Tour Events and has represented Wales more than 15 times in the World Cup.
