Paul Cutler is looking forward to getting his 2012 season off to an exciting start when he tees it up in the Ulster Bank PGA Europro Open at Galgorm Castle from May 29 to June 1.
The 2011 Walker Cup winner is aiming to make his mark on the EuroPro Tour this season and take another step towards a career on the European Tour.
Cutler said: “Although this is my first time playing the event at Galgorm I hear nothing but great things from everyone with a real tournament feel from the crowds and the great buzz it feels like a European Tour event which is obviously where I am aiming for.”
Damien Mooney, Rualdhri McGee, Cian Curley, Michael Lavelle and Noel Fox are just some of the Irish stars set to play in the third staging of a EuroPro Tour event at the Ballymena venue.
Danny Nickless, Operations Manager of the PGA EuroPro Tour said: “There is such a buzz at the venue and players often comment on their excitement of the challenge Galgorm Castle offers closely followed by the wonderful Northern Irish hospitality.”
The 54-hole Galgorm event, supported by Ulster Bank, Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB), Ballymena Borough Council, Galgorm Resort & Spa, official car sponsor Lexus and official media partner Golf Digest Ireland, gets underway with the George Best Invitational Pro-am.
Meanwhile, the EuroPro Tour season began with the Motocaddy Masters at Wensum Valley this week with Colm Moriarty (71) the best of the Irish as he tied for eighth in an event reduced to 36-holes by poor weather. Click here for final scores and earnings.
