As reported by Aussie Golfer a few weeks ago, the world’s top amateur golfer, Australian Scott Arnold has turned professional and will start his professional career at this week’s European Open at the London Golf Club in Kent.
Arnold, a member at New South Wales Golf Club (home of this year’s Australian Open) has had a fantastic year and rumours have abounded for a while now that he would join the professional ranks. He rose to the top of the amateur rankings after Danny Lee turned pro a few months ago.
It’s going to be a fun week to watch the European Tour. Joining Scott Arnold in making his debut as a professional golfer will be the well-rounded Shane Lowry who made headlines winning the Irish Open a few weeks ago as an amateur.
Henrik, Sergio, Angel and Rory are all playing and if that’s not enough, John Daly is too! He’s wrapping up his European golfing tour before heading back to the US PGA Tour as his suspension has come to an end. No doubt he’ll have some loud pants on which has fast become his “thing”.
It beats some of the other “things” he used to be known for.
