From student to European Tour leaderboard!

Chris Hanson

"I turned professional after gaining my Level 3 Diploma and Foundation Degree. I’m now competing at tournaments on the PGA European Tour and PGA Challenge Tour. I work hard on my game, the schedule can be tough and you need real dedication, but the rewards are worth it – I’m out there doing what I love!

It all really kicked off when I won the PGA EuroPro Order of Merit, with victories in the Motocaddy Masters, the Northern Ireland Open and the Network Veka Classic at Mottram Hall – with a second round 63 and a fifteen under par 201 total, worth £10,000!

Since then things have really taken off, with top ten finishes at Challenge Tour events in Madrid and Copenhagen and a fantastic 6th place European Tour finish in the 2017 Trophée Hassan II, at Rabat in Morocco, worth 81,000. 2018 started well at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, tying with Ian Poulter, Tommy Fleetwood and Henrik Stenson for 6th place."
