Adam’s a happy chap


Carus Green Golf Club-based Adam Chapman picked up the first win of his professional career on the 1836 Tour with an impressive six-shot victory.

Playing at Dunham Forest, Chapman led the field in the 36-hole event having recorded a 31st place finish in his first EuroPro Tour event at Close House the previous week with rounds of 65 and 71.

Collecting the £2,700 winner’s cheque, Adam said: “I am delighted to have secured my first professional win at Dunham Forest.

“The first round was one of the best of my life with eight birdies. I added three birdies in the second round with an eagle on 14th. I scored on the holes I needed to and I am over the moon. It was also great to have my dad’s support in the first round with him caddying for me.

“I’m practising harder than ever and hitting the ball really well. I hope that continues for my next 1836 Tour event at Wychwood Park later this month.”

The 1836 Tour is now in its sixth year, with Callaway supporting the Order of Merit and rewarding the winner with a full equipment contract. The leading member on August 31 will have their £1,350 entry fee for European Tour Qualifying School paid by the tour.
