Major Success For De Vere Club Tour Professional Matthew Baldwin
Posted by: Darren Ramowski on Fri 29 Jun 2012
De Vere Club Touring Professional, Matthew Baldwin, has booked his place in The Open Championship, marking the second consecutive occasion that the Lancashire-born former England Boys Captain has qualified for a Major championship this season.
Having come through qualifying for the US Open at Walton Heath last month, Baldwin posted rounds of 65 and 69 to finish in a tie for 3rd at International Final Qualifying at Sunningdale, booking his place to compete in The Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes in the world’s oldest Major.
"I'm delighted at the opportunity to represent De Vere and I’m just as happy with the way my golf has been progressing this season. I’ve been playing great for the last couple of months and making it through Final Qualifying for two Majors is one of the highlights of my professional career so far,” noted Baldwin.
“Making my debut Open Championship appearance at home in the North-West is a bit of a dream come true so soon after my first trip to the US Open and I think the experience of competing in all four rounds in America will hold me in good stead. The De Vere Club has a number of venues in the north-west so hopefully there will be a few supporters out to watch and I’ll look forward to representing them at Royal Lytham.”
Baldwin joined the De Vere Club Tour Staff in March and will make his first appearance in The Open Championship in July after an impressive major championship debut in the U.S. Open at The Olympic Club earlier this month. Baldwin went on make the cut in San Francisco, finishing in a tie for 60th place, beating a number of high profile PGA Tour players in the process.
“We’re delighted for Matthew; he is making great progress on the European Tour and seems to be relishing the challenge of playing at the highest level of professional golf,” commented Daniel Hodson, De Vere’s Director of Golf, Leisure, & Spa. “As a former England Boys Captain, he has the potential to become one of the country’s next superstars and follow in the footsteps of international players who are competing at the top of the world rankings. He is such an enthusiastic and relaxed golfer, so he is a great fit for the De Vere Club. We wish him all the best as he competes in The Open Championship in front of his friends and family; hopefully he can build on his strong start to the season.”
