Barry Lane set for Dunlop Masters defence

Last year's champion, Barry Lane has confirmed he will be defending his title in The Daily Telegraph Dunlop Masters at the Marriott Forest of Arden next week.

The 44 year old Brit gave a superb performance at last year's event, with a triumphant three-stroke victory over Argentine duo Angel Cabrera and Eduardo Romero. The high drama contest saw Lane finish 16 under par, after the shot of a lifetime on the 16th, which took him out of the rough and facilitated a 30- foot birdie putt.

This racked up a fifth European Tour win and his first victory in over 10 years.

Scooping a massive £266,660 prize, it is no wonder Lane is keen to defend the title in 2005 and lay claim to a share of this year's record 1.7milllion prize fund.

Lane explains: "Of course I want to defend my title - last year was a fantastic tournament and it was such a thrill to win. The Arden course is a great venue and it definitely seems to suit me!
"The Daily Telegraph Dunlop Masters is bound to be a tough contest, with some of the world's best competing. But I'm definitely ready for the challenge and it will be great to come back as defending champion - the atmosphere should be electric."

Some of the top names in golf will challenge Lane for the title during the four day tournament, which returns to the Marriott Forest of Arden on 12 May.
Including, last year's runners-up Cabrera and Romero, alongside a host of other famous names such as Darren Clarke, Lee Westwood, Colin Montgomerie, Paul McGinley, Ian Poulter, Ian Woosnam, Thomas Bjorn and David Howell.
