Paul Ferrier is saddling up for another crack at his American dream. It follows a successful fund-raising race night at home club Baberton, where members dug deep to help the former Scottish amateur ace.
Ferrier fell at the first hurdle in his bid to earn a European Tour card this season.
So he’s returning to America, where he spent most of last year, to give himself some playing opportunities.
“I held a fund-raiser at Baberton last week that went really really well,” reported the former Scottish Boys’ champion. “There was a great turnout and everyone was in good spirits and gave generously.
“I’ve now headed back out to the US to start my 2014 season and I can’t wait to get it going.
“Q-School last was obviously very disappointing, but I learned a lot about myself and what it takes to make it in this game. I’m aiming to have status by this time next year and feel I have a good grasp on the professional game to do so.
“Therefore, I hope to play the Latin America Tour and while I’m here I hope to play some PGA Tour and Web.com tour Monday qualifiers.
“I’m then planning on coming home for the summer to play the EuroPro Tour and European Tour School.”
