PGA Stars Prepare for #PassportToPravets Challenge2 min read


Posted on: 12th Oct 2015

A full field of national champions and tournament winners have gathered at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort in Bulgaria for the 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship of Europe and will battle it out for the €10,000 first prize and the coveted title.

PGA Professionals from 24 countries will travel to Bulgaria this week for the fifth iteration of the Championship since it was brought back to the Association’s calendar in 2011, competing across 72-holes of strokeplay golf.

Competitors have qualified through the many local qualification events specified by each of the PGAs of Europe’s Member Country PGAs, as well as through their successes in the Association’s Sanctioned Events and other Championships across the past 12 months.

The lineup comprises of many former European Tour and Challenge Tour members along with Professionals that have been long time representatives of their PGAs at past Championships including the International Team Championship and the Golfbreaks.com Fourball Championship.

Defending Champion Hugo Santos (Portugal) also returns seeking a record fourth win in the event, but 2014 second place, Ralph Miller (Holland), and third place, Russ Berry (England), will be in hot pursuit looking to go a few places better, with a total of seven of last year’s top-10 returning.

The field also includes a representative from one the Association’s International Member Countries, Canada.  Danny King secured his spot in the field after winning the 2015 PGA of Canada Championship, his third win in that event moving him into the top-five in the PGA of Canada’s player rankings.

Two PGA Professionals in the form of Paul Hendriksen and Michael Watson will represent England in the event hot off their historic first US-based win in the PGA Cup, the biennial GB&I versus USA match at CordeValle Golf Club, USA.  Hendriksen is also coming off the back of the British PGA Professional Championship win that secured that PGA Cup place.
