Golf: Gandy breaks into top 1000 golfers in world

Manx golfer records first top 10 finish in 2021

Manx golfing star, Tom Gandy, has broken into the top 1000 golfers in the world.

Gandy is well and truly back on form after a slow couple of months following his career-best finish on the full European Tour in Tenerife in early May.

Recently, Tom recorded his first Top 10 result of 2021 in the Challenge Tour Euram Open.

Despite play being interrupted on a number of the days by heavy rain and thunderstorms, Tom kept both his focus and his form, putting together excellent rounds of 65, 67, 69, 66 for a 13 under par total and a tie for 8th place.

In another milestone, this finish sees him break into the Top 1000 golfers in the world for the first time, according to the Official World Golf Rankings – another great achievement.

This week, Tom returns to action on the full European Tour, as he tees it up in the Cazoo Open.

With an increased prize fund - and more ranking points on offer - Tom will be hoping for a repeat performance to take him to the end of this mini-run of events before he takes another break at home.
