Jamie Rutherford makes solid start to his 2022 European Challenge Tour season.

Jamie Rutherford has made a strong start to the 2022 Challenge Tour season by continuing to play the same level of golf that saw him win the 2021 PGA EuroPro Tour rankings. In 2021 Jamie played in 13 events on the EuroPro Tour, making 12 cuts, he had six top 10 finishes and won the season ending Tour Championship at Slaley Hall, in doing this his stroke average was an impressive 68.29. So far this year Jamie has played 5 Challenge Tour events in South Africa and has made 4 cuts, with two Top 10 finishes and again has an impressive stroke average of 69.11.

When we caught up with him for a game at Woburn in early February he emphasized how he was looking just to continue to try and do the same thing as 2021, you can catch up with his thoughts here :

The 2022 Challenge Tour started in March with 6 co-sanctioned events with the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, and now has a 5 week break before returning for the Challenge De Espana, this is the start of a run of 20 events in Europe, before 2 tournaments in China prior to the season ending Rolex Grand Final, where the top 20 players after that event will gain full playing privileges onto the 2023 DP World Tour.

On his return from a long trip to South Africa he commented “ I went to South Africa with reasonably high expectations, obviously you never know how your going to play at the start of the season, but I am very pleased with the start I’ve made, over the next few weeks I will get some rest I hopefully get some good constructive practise done prior to another long stretch of events, but having said that I can’t wait to get going again to see what happens ! “
