Golfing Breakthrough

RHINS GOLFER Euan Little is on the threshold of life in the big league. For at his seventh attempt, Euan has gained the coveted European Tour Card.

And as he told the Free Press after he arrived home last week:

"This year I was competing for on average £9000 a week. Next year I will be competing for £1.4 million to £1.5 million a week".

Life has been tough for Euan, a member of Portpatrick Golf Club, whose family home is at Mahaar, Inch, since he attended a Texas College on a golfing scholarship and then turned full-time golfing pro.

"My parents have been almost my sole providers other than a few individuals locally and Portpatrick Golf Club", he said.

"But now I know my luck has changed".

His big breakthrough came at the European Tour qualifying school at Emporda Golf Club on Spain's Costa Brava where he emerged from a six-round marathon with a card for next season¹s Volvo circuit.

He posted a final round two under par 69 for an 18-under aggregate of 410 to quality comfortably in 11th place. As well as his card he banked £2400.
