Matchroom Golf Management is delighted to announce the signing of England stars Jonathan Lupton and Richard Finch to their international stable of players.
Both players, who were members of the English Golf Union’s Elite Squad program, will turn professional this week at the Bristol & London Open, the 13th event in the 2003 PGA Europro Tour Schedule at the Players Club, Bristol.
Finch (26), who won the English Amateur Championship, The Spanish National Title and the St.Andrews Links Trophy, was extremely upbeat about his decision to turn to the professional ranks. ‘I just felt that the time was right for me to make my name in the game. With the experience I have gained as an amateur and with Matchroom’s guidance I feel very comfortable with my decision and very excited about my future.’
Former two-time England Boys Champion, Welsh Amateur Champion and current Brabazon Champion Lupton (24) has previously made the final stage of European Tour School as an amateur. ‘I can’t wait to get cracking in the professional game. It’s been a long time coming and I am going to go out all guns blazing. I’ve got a great team behind me and am raring to go.’
Matchroom Golf Director Eddie Hearn commented, ‘I am delighted to secure the signature of these two outstanding prospects. We are dedicated to ensuring the success and developing the full potential of Europe’s finest young talents and both Richard and Jonathan have the spirit, flair and talent that embodies Matchroom Golf. I am very excited about their future in the game and these acquisitions further strengthens our position in the golf management industry.’
