The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour season resumes this week with the Motocaddy Masters at Wychwood Park Golf Club in Cheshire.
As the season heads into the home straight with five events left, one man has dominated the Race to Amendoeira. Chris Lloyd sits comfortably in first place more than £14,000 clear of Nick Marsh in second. And a win at Wychwood Park for Lloyd would not only be a EuroPro record of four wins in a single season, but also the coveted £250,000 four-win bonus.
The Motocaddy Masters tees off on Wednesday, August 9. All players will play 36 holes before a cut to the leading 50 professionals and ties is made after Thursday’s second round. The winner after Friday’s final 18 will take home £10,000 from the £50,000 total prize fund.
The EuroPro Tour returns to Wychwood for the first time since 2012, and provides ample opportunity for Lloyd to make EuroPro history along with £250,000.
Richard Bean, Head of Golf at Wychwood Park, said: “It is an absolute pleasure to welcome back the EuroPro Tour to Wychwood, the whole club is very excited to host such a prestigious event.”
He added: “We have some fantastic local players in the form of Jason Timmis, Sam Connor, and James Need. We also have club member David Edwards playing and would like to wish them well along with all of the other competitors.”
