Martini International

The Martini International was a men's professional golf tournament that was held from 1961 to 1983. It was hosted by several different golf clubs in England, Scotland and Wales. It was part of the European Tour's schedule from the tour's first official season in 1972 until the event ceased. The winners included the major champions Peter Thomson, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros. In 1983 the prize fund was £80,308, which was mid-range for a European Tour event at the time.

The 1971 Martini International saw a unique event occur, when John Hudson achieved the near-impossible feat of scoring two successive holes-in-one, at the 12th and 13th holes at the Royal Norwich Golf Club.
