Value Of The EuroPro: Scott Jamieson

Value Of The EuroPro: Scott Jamieson

September 8th, 2013

The PGA EuroPro Tour has been the learning ground for many of the European Tour’s top pros.

Major winners and Ryder Cup heroes alike have started their professional careers on Europe’s leading development tour. In December 2012, Scott Jamieson claimed his maiden European Tour title, three years after winning the EuroPro’s Order of Merit.

At the recent Scottish Open, John Morgan caught up with the Glasgow golfer, who told the EuroPro’s resident on-course analyst how valuable the Tour has been in his career.

“It was great, it was a massive learning curve for me,” he said. “I had played a year in the States professionally, doing bits and pieces on different mini tours, but realised at the end of it that I wasn’t going anywhere.

“I could have won a lot of money but I wasn’t moving up any sort of ladder so that was when I decided I had to go and play on the EuroPro Tour.

“It was massive [in my development]. You have to learn how to close out tournaments, whether you are in a winning position or going for a top ten or top 20. You have to learn to play in that final round under pressure when it is all on the line.

“Winning is something you have to learn how to do and [the EuroPro] allowed me to do that. Getting that first win was a big highlight and a big turning point in my career.”
