The Movem­ber Foun­da­tion

has be­come well known for en­cour­ag­ing men to grow a mous­tache dur­ing the month of Novem­ber to high­light and help fundraise for Men's health is­sues. The foun­da­tion works on a global scale to fund re­search and pro­grammes that will change the way men are treated and sup­ported.

They have now part­nered with NZ Golf Inc. to run a se­ries of golf tour­na­ments around the coun­try: the Mo-Masters. Play­ing golf has both phys­i­cal and men­tal health ben­e­fits so it made sense to the cre­ate a se­ries that com­bined fundrais­ing, health ben­e­fits and fun.

The first tour­na­ment was held at Akarana Golf Club to­wards the end of Septem­ber with other tour­na­ments be­ing held around the coun­try through to March 2018. The tour­na­ment for­mat is an 18 hole am­brose in teams of 3 with a fo­cus on fun and fast play. The win­ning team from each tour­na­ment, along with their club pro­fes­sional, PGA rep­re­sen­ta­tive or top club player then re­ceive an in­vi­ta­tion to the fi­nals week­end to find the Mo Masters cham­pion team.

Kiwi pro­fes­sional Mark Brown is an am­bas­sador for the se­ries and will be found at as many of the tour­na­ments as he can fit into his tour­na­ment sched­ule, along with other Kiwi golf pro­fes­sion­als.
