Champions of Golf professional Gareth Wright secured one of the illusive golden tickets to join the HotelPlanner.com EuroPro Tour in 2015 having played at the Qualifying School final event at Frilford Heath last week.
Heading into the three round tournament having just been announced as the West Linton Golf Club head professional, following in his fathers footsteps, Gareth was hoping to secure one of the top 30 finishing spots come Friday afternoon and gain his playing privileges for the rest of the year.
Opening rounds of 68 and 70 gave Gareth a six under par total before the cut was made, six shots adrift of leader Martin Sell. However having been in similar positions before, chasing down leaders, Gareth came out of the blocks quickly on the final day although the putter took a few holes to warm up, however a flawless three under par round, thanks to birdies at the 12th, 15th and 16th, Gareth leapt into a tie for 5th position claiming one of the best possible cards from the event.
Gareth now heads to the US for a couple of weeks of warm weather practice before the EuroPro gets underway at Celtic Manor for the World Snooker Open from the 13-15th May 2015.
