World Golf Trick Shot Champion Geoff Swain will wow the competitors at the fifth annual Gee Golf Day at Beadlow Manor next month.

Swain, from Bedford, has performed his amazing trick shots with some of the world’s greatest golfers – including Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter – and on Saturday, June 27 he will help to celebrate the life of Luton pharmacist Gee Patel.

Gee was a devoted family man and passionate golfer, whose love of the sport began when he and some colleagues started playing regularly.

When he wasn’t working or spending time with his family, Gee could be found on the golf course and made annual tours to clubs around the country to indulge his passion.

He played whenever he had the chance, until June 2010, when Gee had a sudden and catastrophic heart attack, at the age of just 52.

Since that tragic day, his brother and the local pharma club to which he belonged have organised a fundraising golf tournament and dinner in his honour.

This year, as well as being wowed by Swain, guests will be entertained by former ITV and Sky Sports journalist and broadcaster Graham Miller who will give an after dinner speech.

Proceeds from the event go to the British Heart Foundation, and so far the event has raised more than £8,000.

Gee’s brother Kiran Patel said: “This event means so much to our family. Gee would have loved to see everyone get together in this way to share in his passion and raise money for such a good cause.

“This event is for everyone regardless of whether you are a golfer or not.

“The course at Beadlow is a challenge and having Graham and Geoff with us on the day is the icing on the cake.”

The day begins with a competition on Beadlow’s Baron course, followed by a sumptuous buffet serving authentic Indian cuisine. Tickets are

£50 for golf and dinner, or £25 for dinner only.
