Here we go!

It is a busy week!  When a number of the European Tour players can afford to take a week off and perhaps do some skiing, the top 64 (or perhaps it is 65 then with Woods not present) are to fight it out for the first match play event of the year. I was going to say the only but the there is that weekend thing in Wales in October so I won’t do that. Ross McGowan is out against the World no 2, Steve Stricker, in the first match which should be a lot of fun for Ross. Follow this action here.

In a different part of the World the amateur season is now kicking off in Europe. Traditionally the season opener is the Portuguese Amateur, and so again this year. 16 English players are ready to open their season in what is normally a nice warm up for the Spanish Amateur the coming week. What is really nice is that the winner usually gets an invitation to the Portuguese Open on the European Tour. That alone is a pretty good reason to travel to Portugal! Follow the English players’ progress here.
