Farr wins to top PGA EuroPro Tour order of merit
5:23pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Sport
OLLIE Farr has earned a place on golf’s Challenge Tour for 2014 after heading the PGA EuroPro Tour Order of Merit.
The Worcester Golf and Country Club professional topped the money list with £33,495 after winning the end-of-year 888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour Championship.
He finished on 13 under following 54 holes at Prince’s Golf Club in Kent to beat Daniel Gavins by one shot.
Farr, along with the other top-five players on the Order of Merit, will now be competing on the Challenge Tour, the tier below the PGA European Tour.
“The last two days I really controlled the ball well and put some great scores in,” said Farr. “It was nice to do that under a lot of pressure. I wasn’t quite sure of my Challenge Tour card for next year but it is brilliant to get it.
“The Challenge Tour card only really occurred to me on the 18th. I was focusing on the last round. I came here this week to just play this tournament as it is and I did that.”
He added: “Playing on the Challenge Tour is something to really, really look forward to. There is a little step up but I will prepare myself and get some good practice in over the winter to get ready for next year.”
