“It gives me the free­dom to play and prac­tise prop­erly in­stead of wor­ry­ing about pay­ing the bills,” says Ste­wart (left), who’s been sell­ing shares since 2012. The Scot es­ti­mates that play­ing last sea­son’s Euro­pean Tour cost him around £60,000£70,000, ex­penses for a sea­son on the PGA Euro­Pro Tour come in at ap­prox­i­mately £15,000 and spend­ing a sea­son on the Euro­pean Chal­lenge Tour costs some­where in be­tween th­ese two fig­ures. “Once you fac­tor in the flights, the ho­tels and your cad­die, it def­i­nitely adds up,” he ad­mits.
