To Play Euro Pro Tour and go to tour school to make the European Tour
About the project
To Compete on the Euro Pro Tour with the aim of Tour school and The Challenge Tour
About the project
My name is Shaun Hall and I am a PGA golf professional just like Ian Poulter used to be.
My ambition and goal is to go from Golf club professional to PGA tour professional starting on the PGA EuroPro Tour with the aim of coming in the top 5 of the order of merit to secure a PGA Challenge Tour card and to compete at Tour school at the end of 2015.
The PGA EuroPro Tour is scheduled on Sky Sports and is competed by golf professionals for a prize fund of £50,000 at each event, with the winner securing £10,000 as prize money. There are 12 EuroPro Tour events in 2015 and the top 5 players secure their card onto the Challenge Tour, which is one tour away from the European Tour and my goal.
I have been a professional golfer for 7 years and have always competed at club professional level in pro-ams and some national events.
My inspiration is Ian Poulter. Seeing what he has achieved from my level to the very top is an achievement I believe I can make with the self-belief which I have.
I am looking for funding and sponsorship to pay for tournament entry fees, accommodation at events and equipment expenses as well as for my lessons, golf club and gym membership.
I am not asking for money to live off: I have a small young family with a wife and child who I can provide for from golf lessons which I will be giving and from tournament winnings. I am dedicating my life to achieving my long term goal to provide for my family and to achieve my life-long dream of being a Tour professional, which is what I turned professional golfer for in the first place.
The PGA EuroPro Tour events are held within the UK from Ireland, Newbury to Celtic Manor; I will also be playing in National events such as The PGA championship. More locally, I will be playing in Hampshire PGA pro ams and championships with local teams and golfers I know personally as well as sponsored teams who are part of my funding team.
I will be keeping all backers informed of my progress through social media such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as keeping a blog of my progress and personal emails. I shall include information about changes to my game with my coaches, what position I finish at each event, and what I plan on doing to improve at each event.
My season starts with EuroPro Tour qualification at the end of March to get my ranking position for all events and my first event will be the qualifying round at the start of May. The entry closing date for EuroPro is March 17th.
I have put together a draft copy of all my events which can be emailed; they include 40 events in total for 2015 and I plan on adding 15 more if viable based on funding for entries.
What you will get for your money:
• Association with myself as a PGA professional who can publicise your Company to hundreds using social media and word of mouth.
• I plan on setting up my own Brand, social website pages and website.
I am asking for your help as someone who turned golf professional for a reason, and that reason was to make it to the top of my game, not to look back in my life and wonder what could have been. I can only achieve my goal with your help and generosity and promise you that you will be rewarded in the future, because I will work 100% to achieve my goal and you will enjoy coming along for the ride.
