« I turned pro last January and I only played on Gecko Tour in 2015. I finished well at the final oroder of merit so I had an invitation to play directly the Alps Tour Q School finale. My goal is to play on Alps Tour instead of playing on circuits in England, first the weather is better in continental Europe and it is nice to learn to travle from country to country each week. »
