Ben Evans today announced that he has signed with Faldo Management, having turned professional following an impressive amateur career.
The 20-year-old from Staplecross in Sussex, who will play a full Challenge Tour schedule this year, left the amateur ranks following the successful defence of his title in the Faldo Series 2007, joining European Tour players Nick Dougherty and Oliver Fisher as the only golfers to have achieved this feat.
Aside from his Faldo Series victories, the +5 handicapper also recorded six top five finishes in some of Europe’s biggest amateur tournaments in 2007 as well as being a member of England’s winning Home Internationals team for this year’s quadrangular tournament.
Evans, who has been a member of Team Faldo since 2004, cited his long-standing relationship with Faldo as a major contributing factor towards his decision to sign with Faldo Management.
“Nick has helped with my progression a great deal over the years and there’s still so much that I can learn from him as I make my way into the professional ranks,” said Evans.
“I definitely feel as though I’m ready to make this step forward in my career and am very much looking forward to the new experiences that the professional game will have to offer.”
Faldo commented: “Ben is a real talent with a sound head on his shoulders and that will definitely serve him well this season. I’m delighted that he has decided to join us at Faldo Management and, should Ben require it, I will be only too happy to continue assisting him in any way that I can.”
