Big congratulations are due to Rory McIlroy who is well on his way to earning his Tour Card for the European Tour just a matter of weeks after he turned professional.
The Co.Down youngster has played in just two tournaments as an amateur but has already earned enough from those appearances to propel himself into 118th place (5th Oct) so as to earn playing rights for next season.
The day after he turned pro he competed in the British Masters earning €15,128 and the following week came a fantastic third at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship earning him a whopping €212,664. Not bad for a couple of weeks as a pro !
So best of luck to you Rory. Here’s hoping that you will be up with the big boys for many years to come and that you do us all proud – and whatever you do, enjoy yourself !
