Richard McEvoy

Mixed emotions for Richard McEvoy in 2017. For the first time in 12 years, Richard claimed a world ranking tour victory at the SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge. McEvoy’s impressive 3-shot victory over Team Jenahura’s James Heath presented a great opportunity to gain one of the highly sought after Top-15 spots in the Road to Oman and with it promotion to Category 16 on the European Tour for 2018. Sadly, Rich couldn’t quite maintain his good form in the middle of the year and agonisingly finished just outside the automatic qualification places to the Race to Dubai. As a result, McEvoy will focus his efforts on a combined European and Challenge Tour during 2018.

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.
