Jack Davidson was crowned wire-to-wire champion in what could be argued as the most dominant display of the campaign.
Despite his historic and highly impressive victory, there were plenty more talking points unearthed from the most recent event.
Jack Davidson – Welshman Triumphs in Wales
Jack Davidson was always destined for the professional ranks following a glittering amateur career that culminated in a Walker Cup appearance.
One week before the event and the Welshman had competed on the DP World Tour at Celtic Manor Resort – which is a mere 20 minutes from his home in Newport.
The 25-year-old has long exhibited his limitless potential, and his dominant display in Wales – where he considered withdrawing prior to play – is further proof of his magnificence.
Michael Stewart, Joe Brooks, Nick Marsh – The Terrific Trio
Michael Stewart, Joe Brooks and Nick Marsh are unbelievably talented golfers, with each player enjoying a fantastic season on the PGA EuroPro Tour.
Remarkably, between the three of them, they have accumulated 18 top 10 finishes across the season!
Despite their impressive – and often enviable – performances, all three remain winless across the year on this tour, which is another unfathomable fact.
With five events remaining (including the Matchroom Tour Championship) it is unlikely that all three will progress to next year’s Challenge Tour.
However, one victory from the remaining five will dramatically change the direction of their campaigns – who will push ahead and record that elusive win?
James Allan – The Challenge Tour Awaits
When we spoke to James Allan after his second seasonal victory at Mannings Heath Golf & Wine Estate, he was calm, collected and ready for the impending challenge.
Allan has been to the Challenge Tour before and he knows what quality awaits him; he also believes that he can progress to the very top.
We typically see a dominant figure from each season, with the most recent example being Mitch Waite who graduated from the 2021 campaign.
However, Waite failed to finish first in the Order of Merit following Jamie Rutherford’s Tour Championship capture – will the same be said for James Allan?
Curtis Knipes – A Return to Form?
Curtis Knipes finished 18th in the Order of Merit last season, with the then 20-year-old playing scintillating golf throughout the entire campaign.
Fast-forward to this year, and the Essex-based golfer failed to find any rhythm during the first half of the season.
However, he has made three successive cuts and he recorded his best finish of the year at Machynys last week, concluding his tournament at T6.
This will hopefully mark the return of the free-flowing and confident 21-year-old, someone who clearly possesses an abundance of raw talent.
Machynys Peninsula Golf Club – Unadulterated Beauty Throughout
Machynys Peninsula Golf Club is one special, special place; the facility received nothing but overwhelming praise for their magnificent asset.
The golf course is truly stunning, with modern facilities to emulate its surreal standing.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone associated with the club – from the staff to the volunteers – and also praise them not only for their unbelievable golf course, but the service experienced from every smiley staff member.
The PGA EuroPro Tour will be back in action on Wednesday August 24, as we head to Clandeboye Golf Club for what looks set to be a week to remember.
We’ll be welcoming Dermot McElroy back to the fold for the first time since his capture of the CPG Classic at Belton Woods Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort.
Our trip to Northern Ireland will mark the 12th tournament of the 2022 season, with only three more regular events scheduled after.
Make sure you keep an eye on our social channels, as we will be reporting all the developments from the tournament.
