Andrew Wilson ready for Grand Final

Andrew Wilson is preparing for the final run of Challenge Tour events in 2020, which culminates with the Challenge Tour Grand Final in November.

Andrew, who is based at Rockliffe Hall, will head out to Spain for the final three events of the season aiming to improve his Challenge Tour ranking for 2021. At present, his category – which will stay the same in 2021 should he fail to improve it in the Grand Final with a top five finish – means he has limited access to Challenge Tour events and is not expected to be in the field for next year’s biggest events, which carry the most ranking points.

Andrew, who is in seventh place on the Challenge Tour order of merit with three events to go, said: “I’ve been in some really good form this season, particularly in September when I picked up back-to-back third place finishes on the Challenge Tour. 

“I’m looking forward to heading to Spain for the last three events. It will be a good chance to improve my category for next season and get some more guaranteed starts on the Challenge Tour. It’s really important to get those secured starts so I can push on and make it onto the European Tour with a top finish in the order of merit in 2021.”

So far in 2020, Andrew has been in fine form at home and abroad. He finished in tied-third place in back-to-back events on the Challenge Tour in September – shooting 10 under-par in the Northern Ireland Open and 15 under-par at the Open de Portugal. He has also picked up several wins in local PGA and mini tour events in 2020, including shooting rounds of 59 at Bamburgh Castle and 60 at Carus Green on consecutive days.
