From student to European Tour leaderboard!

Chris Hanson

I turned professional after gaining my Level 3 Diploma and Foundation Degree in Golf. 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!

My 2011 season set the ball rolling, winning 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! Things have really taken off since then, with top ten finishes in 2015 at Challenge Tour events in Madrid and Copenhagen and then onto the European Tour Qualifying School, gaining the last card for the 2016 Race to Dubai!

This year has produced some strong performances, including a fantastic 5th place European Tour finish in the Trophée Hassan II, at Rabat in Morocco, worth €58,000 and, most recently 8th place at the KLM Dutch Open - worth another €42,000.
