Richard McEvoy

In November 2016, Richard McEvoy gained his European Tour card at Q-School for a record sixth time.  2016 was a “nearly” year for McEvoy who played some of the best golf of his career but fell agonisingly short of maintaining his Race to Dubai playing privileges.  In June, he narrowly missed out on a maiden European Tour win the Lyoness Austrian Open, eventually finishing in 3rd place.

A talented all-rounder as a youngster, he played county football, tennis and badminton before making golf his profession. Took up the game after a PE teacher friend of his father gave him a cut-down club at the age of eight, and he proved to be a prodigious talent.

A member of the victorious 2001 Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team, he has also graduated from the Challenge Tour Rankings twice, in 2005, when he won the Panasonic Panama Open and again in 2009.  Played all four rounds in The Open in 2011, his first major championship.  We believe Richard is a late bloomer and for certain will be in the winners circle before too long.
