A string of fine performances and a closing birdie on the 18th hole in the final round at Prince’s Golf Club ensured Jamie Elson will be on the plane heading to Spain for the EuroPro Tour Championship at Desert Springs. This was a terrific achievement having only played in five EuroPro events, the minimum number to be eligible to play in the seasons finalé.
Jamie’s decision to play on the EuroPro Tour has been a very good one and he has found some excellent form despite struggling with a rib injury that has dogged him for large parts of the year. He has featured extensively in Sky Sports’ coverage of the EuroPro Tour in recent weeks with a top-3 and top-10 finish. Participation in the Tour Championship gives Jamie an outside chance to gain a Top 5 spot in the Order of Merit and with it a guaranteed category on the Challenge Tour next year.
