BLACK BUSH GOLF CLUB TO LAUNCH STEPHEN McCARTHY’S PROFESSIONAL GOLF CAREER ADVENTURE
Every young golfer dreams of life on the professional tour, winning titles and playing the game at the highest level. Black Bush’s very own Stephen McCarthy is ready to chase that dream in 2018.
The 23-year-old Dunshaughlin native first walked the fairways at Thomastown as a 10-year-old. Since then he has gone on to play for the Leinster and Irish Boys teams, he has studied under the Padraig Harrington golf scholarship scheme at Maynooth University and he has undergone his training as a PGA professional under the expert guidance of renowned coach Shane O’Grady at Black Bush.
Having undertaken his PGA Professional training as an assistant at his hometown club – after reaching a plus-two handicap in 2013 – Stephen is qualified as a coach and custom fitter and is a popular member of the staff at Black Bush.
Playing golf remains Stephen’s passion and now he is ready to return to the fairways and take his shot at tour life in 2018.
To begin with, Stephen will work with his coach Shane O’Grady to obtain his playing rights on the EuroPro Tour, Europe’s top development tour, at their qualifying school next April. The EuroPro Tour stages tournaments across Ireland and Britain and serves as a gateway tour to the European Tour.
As well as playing on the EuroPro Tour, Stephen will compete on the Irish PGA circuit here at home, all the time working on improving his golf, his physicality and his mental prowess ahead of a shot at the European Tour’s qualifying school in September.
To launch his bid to join the professional circuit, Black Bush Golf Club are proud to host a day in Stephen’s honour on Saturday, October 28th. All monies raised will help to fund Stephen’s step on the professional golf career ladder.
The day will feature an open four person team event at a cost of €200 per team. All players will get the chance to beat the aspiring pro at a par three on the day!
