Three new professionals are being supported by England Golf’s Give Back agreement with a series of starts on the European Challenge Tour.

Josh Hilleard, Bradley Moore and Sean Towndrow (pictured) will each get England Golf invitations to seven tournaments during 2018. In return they’ll give back a proportion of their winnings, over a certain amount, to the England Players Fund which supports players of the future.

All three players came through England Golf national squads and were leading internationals in their amateur days.

Moore, 20, from Kedleston Park, Derbyshire, begins his campaign this week at the Turkish Airlines Challenge. Hilleard, 23, from Farrington Park, Somerset, starts at next week’s Challenge de Espana. Towndrow 27, from Southport & Ainsdale, Lancashire, will take up his first start in the following week at the Open de Portugal

The Give Back scheme started two years ago and players who have been supported include double European amateur Ashley Chesters, Brabazon Trophy champions Ben Stow and Jamie Bower, English Amateur champion Nick Marsh and Ashton Turner who represented GB&I in the Jacques Leglise Trophy.
