Bunker Backs Craig Howie For 2019
We are always looking out for up and coming talent to support their start in professional golf.
For the 2019 season we will be supporting Scotland’s Craig Howie.
We will be following Craig in his journey through the Challenge Tour (as well as European Tour Q-School which starts next week). His immediate schedule is Stage 2 Q-School, Desert Springs, Almeria 2nd Nov – 5th Nov 2018. Note Craig was exempt from Stage 1 after winning the 2017/2018 Pro Golf Tour. If he manages to get in Top 25, he will get through to the Final Stage at Lumine GC, Tarragona 10th-15th Nov 2018 (where approximately 80 players will compete to get in Top 25, thus securing Category 17 of the 2018/2019 European Tour.
Craig completed his studies at Stirling University (Sports Science) and is now embarking on his career as a professional golfer. He had a successful amateur career, winning the Boys Championship in 2012 and represented Scotland , including winning the European Team Amateur Championship (with Connor Syme) in 2016.
He recently won the Pro Tour Order of Merit, which gives him his card for the Challenge Tour. As the Order of Merit winner he earned €23,000 in total (around £15,000 after tax) but bear in mind his overheads must be circa £30,000 with travel, accommodation, miscellaneous etc.
Craig is going to be giving up regular updates via our Bunker Blog on here but make sure you follow him on Twitter: @crhowie94 and give him your #TeamBunker support.
