With last years experiance of playing some events, Chris is very much looking forward to his first full season as a professional.

BlackStar's 3rd player is 22 year old Jimmy Mullen who was part of the 2015 victorious Walker Cup team, Jimmy joined BlackStar in October last year, and finished a very creditable tied 30th at the Dunhill Links Trophy. Jimmy eventually got to the Final Q School where he missed out on his full tour card, but became a full member of the Challenge Tour.

Jimmy Mullen, one of stars of the 2015 winning Walker Cup team starts his first full season as Professional at the Dimension Data Pro Am on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa on Thursday.

Although Mullen made it all the way through to the final stage of the notoriously tough European Q School, his final position only guaranteed a place on the 2016 European Challenge tour. Jimmy, 22 who represents the Royal North Devon GC said 

"I put so much effort into making the Walker Cup team and did great, I then played great at the Dunhill. The year was going absolutely amazing then it all just came crashing down at the end.

But you've got to learn from it and move on. I've got to learn to play professional golf somewhere and the Challenge Tour is going to be a great place for me to start.

A lot of great players started there and I don't see the problem with me starting there and learning my trade there." 

Mullen's next event will be the season opening Barclays Kenya Open on the European Challenge in 3 weeks time, along with fellow BlackStar golfers Oliver Farr and Chris Selfridge
