£250,000 bonus returns for 2018 PGA EuroPro Tour season

February 20th, 2018

The PGA EuroPro Tour will pay a quarter of a million pounds (£250,000) bonus to any player who wins four tournaments on the 2018 schedule.

The lucrative bonus makes a return to the EuroPro Tour and has been made possible by tour title sponsor, along with Matchroom Sport and sees the total prize money available this season to £1.2million.

PGA EuroPro graduate Chris Lloyd came closest to winning the coveted bonus purse with three wins on the 2017 season, two of those coming in back-to-back performances at Montrose Golf Links and Studley Wood.

The quarter of a million-pound bonus will be paid as a reward to the first player who wins four tournaments on the 2018 schedule, including the Tour Championship but excluding Qualifying School wins.

The 2018 season kicks off at Frilford Heath Golf Club in May, and continues with 14 further 156-man tournaments at the likes of Tulfarris Golf Club, Montrose Golf Links, and Foxhills Club and Resort to name a few. The season will conclude in October with the big-money Tour Championship, where the seasons top 60 will have one final battle to finish inside the Order of Merit Top Five and earn promotion to the Challenge Tour.

Tim Hentschel, CEO at said: “We are delighted to offer this incredible bonus on the PGA EuroPro Tour for a second successive season. Chris Lloyd came incredibly close to winning the quarter of a million-pound bonus, which was one of many fantastic stories from last year’s season. I have no doubt this season will be full of action and look forward to it getting underway.”

Daniel Godding, CEO for the PGA EuroPro Tour said: “We are delighted to be able to offer the first golfer to achieve four wins on the PGA EuroPro Tour the £250,000 bonus again. In partnership with our friends at the quarter of a million-pound bonus is the largest on any satellite tour in the world.”
