Ahead of his defence of the Porsche European Open, Richard McEvoy participated in the Porsche Urban Golf Challenge which took place in Hamburg City Centre on Tuesday 3rd September. An evening for the players to unwind before the main tournament started on Thursday 5th September.

Richard reached the semi final, no doubt a slight confidence booster heading into the opening round of the 2019 Porsche European Open.

Thursday comes around and Richard gets paired with 2018 Masters Champion, Patrick Reed and four time Ryder Cup player and eventual winner, Paul Casey. McEvoy opened with a first round 77 (+5) but managed to claw back a second round 72 (E) which left him at five over for the tournament and unfortunately missing the cut by two shots. Not the defence he would have been looking for but an all round great experience.
