Golfer Dave Coupland has found a first purchaser for his share option.

The 30-year-old will be competing on the PGA EuroPro Tour this year, and to fund his costs he is offering supporters and businesses a piece of the action.

Zhahed Younis of Acorn Taxis is the first backer to put his faith in Dave, and could be in line for a return on his money.

The Boston GC and Woodhall Spa GC golfer has pledged to give 30 per cent of his prize money to shareholders, that number rising to 40 per cent if he can sell between 91 and 120 shares.

If he can sell more than 120 shares then he has promised to hand over half his winnings to his backers.

Shares cost £100 and any firm or supporter who buys at least 10 could see their logo branded on his car and clothing.

Anyone interested in backing Dave can contact him at or call 07708 222 854.
