This year on a beautiful 28’C clear summer’s day on Friday 3rd July the Futures For Kids Golf Day took place at Brocket Hall where golfers competed again for the Bob Ray Memorial Trophy. Bob is greatly missed by the futures community here in London and particularly by FFK, for which he showed magnificent support since its inception in 2008. The event was once again a sell out with ION Trading in the prominent lead sponsor position of Platinum (A full list is shown below).
It was a fantastic day, which everyone enjoyed, and raised over £21,000, much needed funds for the charity.
Competition hole winners were as follows:
Object Trading Longest Drive: Sasha Panajotovic
eClerx Longest Drive: Stephen Butler
TT Nearest the Pin: Graeme Neilly
MET Traders nearest the Pin: Peter Sharp
Beat The Pro: 12 players Beat the Pro Simon Garner and the winner of the BAML donated prize was drawn from a raffle: Danny Turano
Individual Player Prizes:
1st: Jon McFee (FC Stone)
2nd: Patrick Mattar (Blackrock)
3rd: Keith Todd (ION)
Encouragement award: Nadar Awada (special additional prize sponsored by Steve from Capula)

2nd: Ion 3
Tie 3rd/4th: Nasdaq 2 and Sheffield Haworth

And here are some of the photos from the day.
A sincere thank you goes out to all sponsors that were involved in the day - we had 5 new golf day sponsors: ION, Fidessa, eClerx, Blackrock iShares and Deutsche Bank - without whose support this event could not take place and be so successful.
