The seventh tournament on this year’s Ivobank PGA EuroPro Tour begins tomorrow (Tuesday) at The Players Club in Bristol.
Irishman Noel Fox (Team Ireland – MMI, pictured) leads the way in the Order of Merit with £15,220 won so far, a smidgen ahead of fellow countryman Alan Murray (Greystones GC – £14,746.66) and another Irishman Simon Thornton (Royal County Down – £11,022.50). After winning at Stoke by Nayland in the last event, Englishman Nicky Harris (Whitefield Golf Club) moves into fourth spot on £10,597.50, ahead of another Irishman, Brian McElhinney (Team Ireland – £10,230).
One man hoping to put pressure on the leading pack is Chris Hanson (Crosland Heath/GO2SPORT.com) who won yesterday’s Pro-Am at The Players Club and sits in 18th spot on the Order of Merit.
Last year’s tournament provided 2007 Order of Merit winner Graeme Clark with his second victory of the year and this will be the sixth time the Tour has visited the West Country course.
