Garth Mulroy has been grinding away for some time and this year marks his first break into the big league – he has cards for the European and PGA Tours, and won the 2011 Sunshine Tour Order of Merit.
The 33-year-old is currently based in North Carolina in the USA and spends much of his time competing on the PGA Tour. He earned his cards in the States through the Nationwide Tour, where he has taken two victories.
Having won the Alfred Dunhill Championship in November last year, a co-sanctioned event between the European and Sunshine Tours, Mulroy ended up winning the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit.
And coming out on top of the Money List also earned him a spot at The Open, here he will surely relish the chance to take on golf’s greatest tournament.
