Evans set to tackle Q School for the first time


PGA professional Giles Evans is hoping to maintain his flying form when he goes in search of DP World Tour playing rights at Mottram Hall.

The Thetford Golf Club-attached golfer has recently enjoyed that winning feeling at two development tour tournaments. Now the 25-year-old has his sights set on a first-stage qualifier for the DP World Tour.

Evans will tee up from October 4-7 at Mottram Hall near Macclesfield, aiming to earn a spot in Spain the following month when second stage and final qualifying are scheduled.

Evans, who qualified as a PGA professional in 2019, said: “Due to Covid this will be my first time ever competing in Q-School. I'm really excited to give it a go. I understand that it is a completely different experience and I feel like having the right mind-set is key.

“I'm just going to go and enjoy the whole process and see what happens at the end of the week. Obviously it is a chance to fast-track your dreams but I just want to relish the opportunity and try my best – that's all I can do.”

The next few weeks will be very busy for Evans, who is also in action in a Challenge Tour event – the English Trophy – at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire on October 13-16.

Evans said: “I am still right at the start of where I want to get to in my career but for me, I just concentrate tournament by tournament and let the rest take care of itself.

“My sponsors, coaches, family and of course my caddie Owen Mills – an assistant PGA professional at Thetford Golf Club – are all vital to any success that I have.

“The amount of support I have around me plays such a massive part in all of it; without them I wouldn't have the opportunity that I do.”
