Club Pro Lives For The Weekend
Written by RockSport on January 18, 2018
Club pro Tom Buchanan has targeted playing through to the weekend in what is a dream chance to compete at the Abu Dhabi Championship.
It was the 38-year-old Scot’s reward for winning a UAE PGA qualifier.
“To make the cut would be winning the tournament for me,” Buchanan told the media.
“If you look at the strength of the field that’s here – 89 of the top 100 players in Europe last year, plus Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar.”
Buchanan, from Stranraer, was assistant professional at Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club and Duddingston Golf Club before taking on the head professional role at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting and Golf Club in UAE.
He has never before played in a European Tour or Challenge Tour event.
