This week European Tour Weekly comes from Stockholm, Sweden, venue for the Nordea Masters. ETW will be on the range at the Bro Hof Slott course with all the latest thoughts from the players on the eve of the event.
As always European Tour Weekly will review all of the best of the action from the most recent European Tour event. This week that means a return trip to Wentworth for the BMW PGA CHAMPIONSHIP where the cream of European golf assembled at the testing Surrey venue.
Teeing up at the BMW PGA CHAMPIONSHIP amongst some of golf’s biggest names were 10 PGA Professionals, all hoping to make a name for themselves at Wentworth. ETW caught up with one of them, Paul Streeter, to find out what it’s like to play in such a prestigious event. Streeter is the PGA Professional at Lincoln Golf Centre and normally spends his time coaching amateurs, but he returns to Wentworth with fond memories from last year where he finished tied 21st.
European Tour Weekly was at the Players’ Awards Dinner at the Sofitel Heathrow last week to celebrate another stellar year for The European Tour. Amongst the many highlights of the evening was the reuniting of all 12 members of Europe’s victorious Ryder Cup team on stage. Amongst the awards handed out was the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award which went to Ricardo Santos and the Players’ Player Award which was presented to The Race to Dubai winner Rory McIIroy.
For the eighth successive year Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey hosted the US Open Qualifying. Played over 36 holes, one round on each of the two championship courses, the event always produces drama as players attempt to make it to the US Open at Merion Golf Club next month.
Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour, this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
