Chesterfield professional golfer George Woolgar has been busy on the course recently, taking part in a number of tournaments both at home and abroad.

After a busy couple of weeks travelling to France and then straight to Kazakhstan, George’s schedule has changed due to the field sizes being reduced by category from last year.

This is opposed to the order of merit on the Challenge Tour, meaning George would narrowly miss out.

As a result, the Chesterfield pro has been involved in competitive action in the UK, enjoying success in a number of tournaments and pro ams events.

“With the time off from the European Challenge Tour, I’ve been working hard with Steve Astle through the Derbyshire Institute of Sport on my whole game and Paul Farquharson on my physical side,” George said.

The Chesterfield Golf Club member, who qualified for the tour after a successful season on the Euro Pro Tour, added: “I haven’t got long now until the European Tour Qualifying School second stage in November.

“So, my preparation over the next few weeks is going to be vital to get through to the final stage and get my main European Tour Card.

“My game is in a good place at the minute with winning at the Leo Feeney Pro am and the Eagle Tour Championship.”
