This week European Tour Weekly travels to the City of Newport for the ISPS Handa Wales Open, which kicks off the qualifying points race for the next Ryder Cup at The Gleneagles Hotel in 2014. ETW will be on the range at The Celtic Manor Resort with all the latest thoughts from the players on the eve of the event.

The ISPS Handa Wales Open always attracts a truly international field and ETW recently met up with one of them, American Peter Uihlein. A former World number one in the amateur rankings Uihlein made his mark on The European Tour earlier this season when he won the Madeira Island Open – BPI. 

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 Scotland for the Johnnie Walker Championship at The Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.
Whilst in Scotland ETW caught up with former Open Champion winner Paul Lawrie. Lawrie, last year’s Johnnie Walker Championship winner, was competing against his victorious 2012 Ryder Cup Captain, Jose Maria Olazabal in an exhibition match to raise funds for Lawrie’s Foundation. 

Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour, this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
