Diary: Media men on a golfing jolly ... whatever next?

It appears that members of the media industry are getting so good at golf that Campaign is beginning to think they spend longer on the green than in the office.

Last week, a selection of media men dragged themselves out of their boardrooms and donned the obligatory plaid trousers or plus fours for Nabs' Ron Miller Classic Golf Tournament.

The contest, which was sponsored by the advertising veterans Nigel Bogle, Sir John Hegarty and David Kershaw, saw 19 teams including Emap, TBWA\London and The Guardian all tee-off for the coveted trophy.

After 18 holes of golf, there was nothing in it at the top of the leaderboard, with Group M, M&C Saatchi and Channel 4 all scoring 95 (in this round, the highest score reflected the best golf). But, in the end, it was Group M who landed the top prize for their superior performance over the last nine holes.

Meanwhile, the Omnicom team were left cowering behind their caddies with a final score of just 70.

The proudest man at the clubhouse had to be Media Planning Group's Mark Craze, who won the prize for longest drive, at 310 yards.
