Twenty Scots in field for first £50,000 EuroPro 

Tour event of season at Celtic Manor

There are 20 Scots in a field of 168 players for the start of the PGA EuroPro Tour season - a 54-hole stroke-play evening beginning tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Montgomerie Course, Celtic Manor Resort, Newport in Wales.
On top of a mandatory PGA membership fee, the entrance fee to each event is more than £250 but the attraction for the pros is an increased prize fund of £50,000 every tounament week with £10,000 going to the winner.
The added incentive to do well is the fact that the leading five in the tour's order of merit will gain automatic promotion to the Challenge Tour next season.
The Scots in the field are Lloyd and Zack Saltman, Sam Kiloh, Craig Lawrie, Chris Robb, Greg McBain, Paul Doherty, Kris Nicol, Mark Rae, Neil Fenwick, Paul Shields, Michael Patterson, Michael Stewart, Neil Henderson, Danny Kay, Paul Robinson, Jordan McColl, Scott Borrowman, Jake Hogg and Craig Sutherland.

One innovation on the 2015 schedule is a 72-hole tournament.
The EuroPro Tour will call in at Newmachar at the end of June fot the Paul Lawrie Foundation Granite City Classic over three rounds.
