This week the European Senior Tour kicks off in full, the Challenge Tour head to the Czech Republic, the EuroPro Tour is once again in action and the European Tour touches down in Northern Ireland, so a very mixed bag!
We start on relatively 'home' soil as the European Senior Tour season gets underway for the field tour at the SSE Enterprise Wales Senior Open. Having returned from the US Senior PGA Championships last week, Gary Wolstenholme, along with only a handful of other European professionals will no doubt welcome the easier walk, less undulating greens and surprisingly warmer weather this side of the Atlantic.
The event begins on Friday 29th May from The Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales, which played host to dramatic scenes five years ago as the Europeans claimed victory over the USA in the 2010 Ryder Cup.
Gary gets his first round underway alongside Ross Drummond and Mauro Bianco teeing off at 9.40am.
The second Champions of Golf ambassador out in action this week is only a short hop across the Irish Sea from Wales playing in Northern Ireland on the European Tour at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory McIlroy Foundation.
Following one of the most dramatic and exhilarating weeks in Jason's life let alone professional career, having finished T46 at the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship which he followed up by qualifying for the US Open, Jason is riding a wave of excitement into this week.
Jason's first round begins at 9.00am alongside Jbe Kruger and Matthew Fitzpatrick on Thursday 27th May.
The final player to be on home soil is Neil Fenwick who this week is competing at the EuroPro Kerry London Championship at Burhill Golf Club. Neil is currently tied 14th on the overall EuroPro Order of Merit having finished T13 at the World Snooker Open and T14 and the Buildbase Open only last week. Along with this Neil played in a mini Tartan Tour following the conclusion of the Buildbase Open where he once again had a top 20 finish.
Neil begins his first of three rounds on Thursday 28th May.
The only Champions of Golf professional overseas on tour is Scott Arnold who is taking part in the Challenge Tour event, the D+D Real Czech Challenge at the Golf & Spa Kuneticka Hora.
Playing alongside Boria Etchart and Jakub Pokorny (AM) teeing off at 9.30am (UK time) in round one on Thursday 28th May, Scott is keen to build on his recent run of good form as he finished in a tie for 16th place at his last outing on the Challenge Tour at the Karnten Open in Austria. This result lifted him to 60 on the Challenge Tour Order of Merit, a rise of over 30 places and a big step in the right direction to keeping or improving his playing rights for the 2016 system.
As always we wish the best of luck to all the Champions of Golf professionals in action on the various tours this week.
