The 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship ‘Passport To Pravets’ campaign is underway as the Championship is confirmed to take place from the 14 – 17th October 2015 at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort, Bulgaria.
The Championship is the Association’s flagship full 72-hole individual strokeplay tournament and is the flagship event of a now 13 event-strong tournament calendar, the most comprehensive in the PGAs of Europe’s 25-year history.
24 PGAs have their qualifying events in place, and when complete, the leading eligible players will qualify to compete at the Championship for a prize fund of €60,000 and the prestigious title.
Along with the qualifiers from Member Country PGAs, the Championship will this year come with the added boost that the ‘Passport to Pravets’ banner provides – each of the eligible winners from the other PGAs of Europe Championships and Sanctioned Events on the calendar will also qualify to compete.
Already confirmed to play from this category are 2015 Kempinski “The Dome” Pro-Am winner, Liam Bond (PGA of Great Britain & Ireland), along with 2015 Golfbreaks.com Pinehurst Pro-Am winner, Simon Edwards (PGA of Great Britain & Ireland).
Also returning again after Top-10 finishes in 2014 are Laurent Poncelet (PGA of France), Paul Archbold (PGA of Germany) and Zeke Martinez (PGA of Italy).
PGA Professionals can contact their PGA to find out more on qualifying for the Championship.
