He started hitting balls when he was 11 years of age, spending his first years at a par-3 course close to his hometown, Sant Andreu de Llavaneras, 30 minutes north of Barcelona. Pep had a decorated career at junior and full men’s amateur level, winning the European Championships as well as numerous US Collegiate tournaments whilst on a 4 year golf scholarship at the University of Central Arkansas. It was not just on the golf course that he succeeded, he majored in MIS concentrated in Business Analytics, graduating in May 2015 with a GPA of 3.542. His experience in America enabled him to not only get his full Challenge Tour card in his first year as a pro, but to go on and finish inside the top 15 in the order of merit, which automatically qualified him to play on the full European Tour the following season.

In his first full European Tour season (2017) he competed in 27 major events, with his best result coming in the Rocco Forte Open, where a 4th place finish achieved him a prize of €50,000. After securing 216,228 points in the Race to Dubai standings, he entered final stage of Q school in Lumine needing a top 25 finish to guarantee his card for the forthcoming year. In a tough school for one of golf’s most coveted prizes, he held his nerve during 6 rounds under intense pressure to seal his fate to play amongst Europe’s elite again for the 2018 season and finished in tied 9th position.

Along with his charisma and trendy dress sense, he has earned notoriety for being the longest player off the tee, recording a 428 yard drive at the Qatar Masters which was the furthest on tour that season, which has drawn in fans from around the globe. Pep is a current Nike athlete and signed a contract to market their apparel at the start of the 2017 season. Off the course Pep enjoys socialising with friends and is an avid motocross fan!

Oliver Clarke

Oliver Clarke

Euro Pro Golfer

Oliver is from one of Liverpool’s most under-privileged districts and has overcome obstacles at a young age that would have stopped most in their tracks. In a sport often wrongly associated with wealth – he has shown that talent and desire are still the most valuable commodities for the modern day athlete. His character and values reflect his upbringing; from a close-knit, loving home, but handed nothing on a plate – he strives for everything.

Before turning professional in March 2017, Oliver announced himself as one of the most precocious talents in junior golf. Aged just 11, he re-wrote the record books, becoming the youngest ever player to represent the County of Lancashire at U14 level and by 13 years of age he achieved a ‘scratch’ handicap’ at Formby Golf Club. His dominance of the Lancashire Boys Championships has seen him set the benchmark, still to be surpassed, of winning at U14s, U16s and U18s level – made all the more remarkable by being achieved by the age of 15 years old. He has captained, with standout success, the England Boys National team, who he represented with distinction for over half a decade. His junior career ended in the most appropriate manner possible; victories in the Irish Boys Championship and the English Champions of Champions Event.

With his pedigree and potential evident – Oliver turned professional – playing on the European Pro Tour and carried the success and progress of his junior career into his full time role – already achieving his first professional win aged 18. Oliver is every inch the modern athlete; addicted to hard work, be it on the range, the course, the gym or any aspect of the modern day profession that can give you an edge.

Oliver is strategic in thinking and long term in his planning; he wants to learn more on the European Pro Tour – getting as much experience as possible to take into the next step of his career. His schedule is 12 months a year, during these formative, learning stages – he will participate in the Algarve Tour in the winter to maximise his playing time.

 

“From the first day I signed with WRSM, I was quickly made to feel that my success both on and off the course was their number one priority.”

Johannes Veerman

Because of this, he can speak English, Indonesian, Malaysian, Dutch, and some German!

After taking his Medical college admission test and submitting applications, Johannes had a change of heart and decided to try his hand at professional golf for a summer on the Adams Tour in 2015.

He didn’t want his boyhood dreams to die without giving it a try, and his decision proved a success with a 3rd place finish on the money list – playing in only half the events on the schedule! This was the point when he knew he had to give his all to a career in the professional game.

Next up was Asian Tour Q school In January 2016 which qualified him to pay in full-field events as well as the Asian Development Tour. Johannes not only won the order of merit on the Development Tour, but also finished in the top 60 on the Asian Tour with 4 top 10 finishes along the way. This resulted him gaining his full playing rights for 2017. 2017 saw him achieve a 2nd place in the Taiwan Yeangder, 5th in the Macau Open, 12th in the Maybank and most notably loose to Louis Oosthuizen in the ISPS Handa Perth on the 3rd extra hole during the match play rounds.

Greg Payne

Greg Payne

Euro Pro Golfer

Greg hails from Camberley and started playing golf at 7 years of age at his local club; Chobham in Surrey.

The 24 year old realised by the age of 12 that he wanted to become a professional golfer; a dream that soon became a reality.

By the age of 13 he shot a record 28 on the back 9 of his home course and a year later achieved scratch handicap which lead to him winning the club championships as a 14 year old. He was already destined for glory.

His junior accolades didn’t stop there. Greg’s enormous hard work and talent saw him picked to represent Surrey at every age group from under 14’s, winning the under 18 county junior championships along the way; beating Gloucestershire in the final.

During these early years, the global sporting brand Nike Identified Greg as a prospect they wanted to work with, and have since supported his development by providing full product support throughout his amateur and professional career. His endeavour to be the best, on and off the course, played a major influence in one of the leading brands wanting to work with such a talented athlete.

In his last years as a junior, his highlight’s included a 2nd place finish at the Mcevoy trophy and most prestigiously winning the Surrey junior championship.

This caught the intention of many, including being selected to represent the European Boys team during the championships in Prague, where he played his part in securing victory.

The same year also saw success in the home internationals where he represented England to victory over Scotland and Ireland.

Greg made the decision to leave school at the age of 16 and pursue a sports psychology scholarship in Spain, which would enable him to play golf full time at Alhaurin golf club, an academy for aspiring young professionals like himself.

His success continued, and in his first year of men’s golf at the age of 18, was chosen to represent England in Peru after coming 8th in the Portuguese Amateur.

The Sunningdale Foursomes was next in his sights, an event which lead to victory, winning the title in 2012.

After playing a full season as an amateur, he felt the time was right to turn professional at the age of 19 – which ultimately proved the right decision after winning first stage of qualifying school for the Euro Pro Tour in his first attempt.

This lead to final stage at Frilford Heath, which saw his full playing rights gained with a top 20 finish – again at the first time of asking.

To date, he has been participating on the Euro Pro for the last 5 years which have seen numerous 2nd place finishes, and an 8th overall on the order of merit.

The plan for 2018 is to continue his fine form on the Euro Pro, and gain full playing rights for the European tour. He is committed and destined to compete with the very best.

His two loves other than golf ; supporting the Indianapolis Colts and going to the gym… As well as spending time with his girlfriend and his 3 goddaughters!
