Wakey, Wakey

A measure of the European Tour’s strength in depth can be seen from Simon Wakefield’s season.

Our long-time client has had three top-ten finishes – the latest in Denmark last week – and yet still finds himself with work to do to hang on to his card.

Not that Simon should be too worried – he’s proved himself King of the Tour School before, but I’m sure he’d rather not have to do it again.

Other notable performances in Denmark were Simon Dyson and Shiv Kapur’s in the top 25 while Matt Nixon was only just behind.  

I believe all three will have strong ends to the season and really impress next time around.

Another to watch out for next year is Byeong-Hun An, who tied for fourth at the Vacon Open in Finland.

Our European-based players head for the D+D REAL Czech Masters this week while we also have several looking for FedEx points when the PGA Tour’s final series gets under way in New York. It should make for a very interesting weekend of golf.

Congratulations to Joe Root for not only scoring an unbeaten 149 against India and winning man-of-the-match honours in the series deciding encounter, but also for entering the world’s top ten for the first time.

I’m sure he’ll be there for a long time.
