You can buy a £100 share in Wallace Booth to 

help him meet 2017 EuroPro expenses

Comrie, Perthshire's former Walker Cup player Wallace Booth is following the successful example of another Scot, Duncan Stewart, in planning to raise the £20,000-£25,000 he needs to fund the 2017 season on the EuroPro Tour, on which he was a winner in 2012.
Wallace says:
"Since September, my golf is in the best shape it has ever been, along with mentally having turned the corner in terms of belief and also being injury-free, making me excited for the challenges ahead next year.
"I will be playing full time on the EuroPro tour, with the minimum goal of obtaining my Challenge Tour card for 2018."
Booth, 30-year-old brother of LET player Carly, feels that selling shares in himself for next season is the best way to be able to go out and play worry-free golf, allowing him to focus fully on his game.
"To play a full season including, warm weather prep and tour school at the end of the year, I will need roughly £20,000 - £25,000, so I am aiming to sell 250 shares at £100 per share," says Walace.
"There are also options for branding of a business logo if enough shares are purchased by an individual person or company. I will pay each shareholder a dividend at the end of the year from my total winnings (after withholding tax/PGA levy):

- if I sell 1 - 150 shares, then I will split my winnings 70% me / 30% shareholders.
- if I sell 151 - 200 shares, then I will split my winnings 60% me / 40% shareholders.
- if I sell 201 shares or more, then I will split my winnings 50% me / 50% shareholders."
