“I am pleased that I have the opportunity to involve Paul’s expertise, and I appreciate all that he has done for me to date. It is my job to forge my own way in the sport now and it gives me added confidence to know that I have not just Paul, but a full team of talented people advising me,” said Sam.
“I am still excited from last week but realise that not only is this just the start for me, but I have so much to learn. I now have to cope with the real world of professional sport and all of the challenges that this brings. All I know is that I am ready to give it 100% commitment and relish the job ahead.”
Speaking about Sam’s decision to sign with Five Star, Paul Lawrie said: “Sam did brilliantly at The Open. He’s been making big strides since winning the Scottish Amateur at Prestwick last year. I see him working hard on his game most days at the Centre (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre, Aberdeen) and we have been working closely with Sam for some time now.”
“Helping Sam as he matures within the Professional ranks is something I’m looking forward to and I’ll continue to do whatever I can personally to ensure he can focus fully on his performances and results.”
Sam’s debut in a Professional event will be at the Swedish Challenge, hosted by Robert Karlsson (2-5 August) where he’s been extended a tournament invitation. He can look forward to a number of additional European Challenge Tour starts between then and the end of the season as he cuts his teeth on Europe’s secondary circuit.
