Hacienda Del Alamo Club Champion and Amatuer Course record holder, John Green is about to start his Summer Tour Schedule. John who turned Professional this year, aged 52, is heading off to the Czech Republic in June followed by Germany to play two events on the Seniors Pro Golf Tour.
In July, John will then travel to Scotland to play some magnificent links courses and two more Seniors Pro Golf tour events at the Darley Course at Troon and Macrihanish Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsula.
John will also be attempting to qualify for the Seniors Open at Royal Troon, 24th to 27th July 2008, with qualifying taking place on the 21st July. (Venue to be confirmed)
From Scotland, it’s down South for three Euro Pro Tour competitions in the South of England at the East Sussex National Selsdon Park in Croydon and Whittlebury Park in Towcester.
John's first outing as a Professional earned him a creditable 9th place at the Bedford Golf Club in Europro Tour Qualifying finishing 2 under par over 36 holes.
Further events are scheduled, not least heading to Ireland to continue on the Seniors Pro Golf Tour. (Venue to be confirmed)
