Broadhurst aiming to regain European Card

Paul Broadhurst may have failed to win his European Tour card for 2002 last month but already the former Ryder Cup star is workin on winning his place back in time for 2003.

Broadhurst, who previously represented Europe in the Ryder Cup against the Unitesd States in 1991, failed to win back his card after the 2001 Q-school.

But this week he confirmed that he has teamed up with one of Europe's leading coaches Bob Torrance.

Speaking after a three-week break with his family in Kenya, he said"Since I have been back, I've been to see Bob Torrance and we're currently working on improving my backswing.

"The problem I've had this year is that I've had a lack of consistency going down to the ball. Therefore, Bob is trying to give me a different line of backswing.

"It feels a bit foreign at the moment, but the good news is it's getting better all the time.

"I played a winter pro-am near Wolverhampton earlier this week and I finished fifth, although the course wasn't particularly difficult. But I need to keep playing to make it feel normal and I'm not going to let this work peter out over winter."

He added: "Ken (Schofield) has said the Tour will do as much as they can to get me some invites (for 2002) and he's asked me to send him my ideal schedule - which I have.

"The schedule I sent to Ken covered about 30 events. If I can get to play 20 or more, then that would be great.

"I've got a lot of hard work to do but I've been encouraged by what the European Tour have said and Bob is really helping my game. Let's hope 2002 can bring me some better luck than 2001 did."
