EUROPEAN TOUR

James Morrison

James Morrison captured his first European Tour title at the 2010 Madeira Islands Open, having graduated from the Challenge Tour the previous year. Won his second title in 2015 at the Open de España.

Took an unusual route to the top of European golf, not seriously playing the game until he was 16 as a Junior member at St George’s Hill G.C where he remains a member to this day.

Until that point he had focused on cricket, playing in the same England youth teams as Alastair Cook, Ravi Bopara and Tim Bresnan, but went from an 18 handicap to scratch in less than a year and earned a golf scholarship to the University of South Carolina.

Returned home to play first on the EuroPro Tour and then the European Challenge Tour, having turned professional after the 2006 Qualifying School.
