The RSM Gross Series is looking ahead to the PING Open for Golfers with a Disability at Thonock Park Golf Club, Lincolnshire in England, on June 13-15. Entries are welcome now for this limited field event for both amateurs and professionals.
This will be the second tournament in the RSM Gross Series after a successful first edition in May: the Johnny Reay Classic won by World Ranked No:1 player (WR4GD Gross) Brendan Lawlor of Ireland.
Sponsored by EDGA partner RSM, leaders in audit, tax and consulting services, the RSM Gross Series features six tournaments in which a limited field of players has the opportunity to play demanding course set-ups, helping to raise their already high competitive standards and to play regularly at this level. Three of the events are being staged in the UK with a final event played internationally at the end of the year.
Leading RSM Gross Series players are bidding to qualify for G4D Tour events (the G4D Tour is EDGA’s collaboration with the European Tour Group) and four players from the recent G4D @ Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett at The Belfry elected to play in the Johnny Reay Classic.
Each RSM Gross Series event has a prize fund in line with the Rules of Amateur Status and is open to eligible players, both professional and amateur.
Entries are now welcome for the PING Open for Golfers with a Disability at Thonock Park GC in June, a limited field tournament staged in collaboration with PING, a key partner of EDGA.
EDGA President Tony Bennett said: “We are all looking forward to what will undoubtedly be a brilliant tournament with our partner, PING. It is sure to be an excellent week for amateur players who are looking to raise their game, while offering a fantastic opportunity for our professional golfers with a disability who will be aiming at the prize fund.”
Net & Stableford
Alongside at least three RSM Gross Series events this summer, there are separate events for Net and Stableford division players. These tournaments will be helpful for those wishing to get onto or improve their ranking, for qualification to the EDGA-RSM European Play-offs, which are being sponsored by RSM for a second year in 2022.
There are also 23 EDGA Tour events this season in 12 countries, across Gross, Net and Stableford divisions (open to golfers with a disability who have a recognised Access or WR4GD pass).
