John Henry pursues tour dream

2014 06 John Henry 11

John Henry, the younger brother of tour star Scott, has not given up on his dream to play on the European Tour and is once again hosting a fundraising day to help procure the necessary funds to play on satellite tours across Europe.


Henry, 21, currently plays on the Alps Tour and told bunkered earlier this year that hosting his own golf day helped pay some of his expenses.

“They help keep me playing,”said Henry. “I’ve also got a couple of sponsors, which helps, and I work part-time time in the shop at Mar Hall. It can be hard juggling everything, particularly at the height of the season, but the guys at Mar Hall are really good and organise my shifts to suit my golf.
"Without people playing/supporting this day, I would not be able to play at the level I am." - John Henry

The golf day will be held on September 29, the Monday after the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, and that's something he hopes will spur people on to get out and play.

“This day is very important for me at this point in my career as it gives me funds to use towards a very expensive season, so everyone is highly thanked,” said Henry.

“Without people playing/supporting this day, I would not be able to play at the level I am and be trying to climb up the tours and play on the European Tour, which is my short term goal.”

To sponsor John Henry


A fourball at John Henry's fundraiser costs £100 and includes 18 holes and a two-course meal. Businesses can sponsor a hole for £30.
