Mc Grane earns place on Euro­pean Tour

Novem­ber 1982

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

Wex­ford golf pro­fes­sional Damien McGrane is on cloud nine this week af­ter se­cur­ing his Euro­pean Tour card for next sea­son.

His steady progress was re­warded at the qual­i­fy­ing tour school in Spain when he fin­ished in 32nd place, with the top 35 along with ties be­ing guar­an­teed their tour cards.

The adopted Wex­ford man was over the moon with his per­for­mance, par­tic­u­larly af­ter his in­volve­ment in the fin­ish of the chal­lenge tour ex­empted him from some of the ear­lier qual­i­fy­ing rounds.

This would have in­creased the pres­sure on many a golfer, but Damien played out of his skin in Spain to earn his card in very spe­cial cir­cum­stances.

He was lucky to have for­mer Wex­ford as­sis­tant pro­fes­sional Liam Bowler - his for­mer club col­league - as his caddy for the qual­i­fy­ing rounds.

The Meath na­tive is now guar­an­teed in­vites to eight Euro­pean Tour events next year, and the hope is that he will also end up with a lot more.

The cap­tain, com­mit­tee and mem­bers of Wex­ford Golf Club have passed a unan­i­mous vote of con­fi­dence to Damien on his achieve­ment, and wish him the best of luck in the fu­ture.
