The Players Tour tees off at London Golf Club
November 5, 2012

The Players Tour, a new British Development Tour for current touring and up and coming Professional golfers, hosted its inaugural launch event at the European Tour venue, London Golf Club on Wednesday 10 th October.

With a strong field consisting of European Tour, EuroPro Tour and Jamega Tour players and with the 7,000 yard International Course set up to mirror Open Qualifying held there earlier in the year, the players knew they would have to be at their very best to stand a chance of taking the launch event title.

There were some very solid rounds from James Doswell (70) and Max Brackley (71) who came in at 2nd and 3rd respectively, but it was 22 year old, Colton Alleyne-Davis from Hastings, on his Professional debut, who shot the lowest score of the day with a superb 69 (-3) and in turn, planted himself firmly on top of the 2013 Order of Merit by collecting the £1,300 winners cheque from Tour Director, Jamie Kean.

And what makes the achievement even more remarkable is that Colton only picked up a club for the first time six years ago, at the age 16!!

The Players Tour, which has major golfing brands sponsoring it in 2013 including Motocaddy, IJP Design, Never Compromise and Nikon among others, will be visiting 26 of the finest venues and courses in the UK as part it's 2013 one and two day schedule including: Woburn, Woodhall Spa, Celtic Manor, London Club, Moor Park, The Addington, West Hill, Frilford Heath, Princes, The Oxfordshire, Isle of Purbeck and Luffenham Heath.
