MORE WELSH GOLF TOUR PLAYERS THAN EVER BEFORE

16 Dec 2004

The Sports Council for Wales today toasted a sensational 12 months for Welsh golf in which an unprecedented number of the nation’s golfers booked tour cards.

In 2005, 13 Welsh golfers will play on the European Tours and two of them, Phil Price and Becky Morgan, are also able to play at the highest level in the States.

This record-breaking number of touring golfers makes Wales second-only to Sweden in the European ranking of tour professionals per head of population.
