Sponsor of Ollie Farr - European Tour Professional


BIOGRAPHY – OLLIE FARR

Born 25/3/1988, son of a former European Tour Professional, Ollie started on the Challenge Tour in 2014, winning his first title after playing in just 4 tournaments, at the Turkish Airlines Challenge.  He dedicated that victory to his grandfather, who had died earlier that week after nearly pulling out of the tournament.

After a 3rd place finish at the season finale in the Dubai Festival City Challenge, he secured his place in the top tier and ended his year in 10th position in the rankings.  Ollie was inspired by his father Graham, after swinging his first club at the age of 3.  His father now coaches and advises him. Ollie is a local lad living now in Hereford, married with a young baby.

Some of Ollie’s accolades include:

Representing Shropshire & Herefordshire at every level and winning the U-18, youth and S & H championships.

He represented Wales in 4 Home Internationals, 3 European Tour Championships and 1 World Team Championship

Turned pro in October 2011, and made his home club Worcester G.C.C

Ollie’s first professional win was on the Jamega Tour in 2012 which was played at Burghill Valley

Won 2 times in 2013 on the PGA EuroPro Tour and finished 1st on the OOM to move up to the European Challenge Tour

Gained a European Tour Card in 2015 after winning the Turkish Airlines Challenge

Best result on European Tour was finishing 27th at the BMW Championships at Wentworth
