Walker Cup winner and 2013 Boys Amateur champion Ewen Ferguson has turned professional and will make his debut this week on the Challenge Tour in France.

"It’s really exciting to be making this move after just turning 20" - Ewen Ferguson

“It's been my long-term goal to become a professional golfer and it’s really exciting to be making this move after just turning 20,” said Ewen Ferguson, who has gained valuable pro experience in 2016 as part of Scottish Golf’s initiative with Bounce Sports to help smooth his transition to the paid ranks.

“In Bounce Sports, I've signed with a great management company, have starts guaranteed and sponsors on board, so it’s a really exciting time for me, my family and everyone connected to Bearsden Golf Club. I would like to thank Scottish Golf, sportscotland and sponsors such as Aberdeen Asset Management for all their support, having started in the national set-up when I was 13.”

The 2015 Scottish Amateur Golfer of the Year, who helped Scotland win the European Amateur Team Championship last summer before missing out on this year’s successful title defence due to a hand injury, has already made two Challenge Tour appearances as an amateur this season, making the cut in both the Turkish Airlines Challenge in Belek and the Montecchia Open by Lyoness in Italy.

“I learned so much from my two Challenge Tour appearances as an amateur, realising how good the professionals are and what I need to do to compete with them,” he added.
