European Challenge Tour

Leading county male professional Ryan Evans makes his long awaited return to the European Challenge Tour this week as he tees off in the Austrian Open at Diamond GC near Vienna.

The Wellingborough golfer, whose last overseas tournament appearance in February saw him lift the team prize in the Dimension Data Pro-Am at Fancourt GC in South Africa, will be keen to regain his form quickly following the COVID-19 resumption.

Evans will face stiff competition however as he takes on a strong field that includes former Ryder Cup players Miguel Angel Jimenez and Nicolas Colsaerts.
