2013 European Tour Workshop Blog

Hello all and welcome to the new blog for 2013.

It's the beginning of another year on the European Tour which started last week in South Africa with the Volvo Golf Champions event. I'm pleased to say that we recently re-signed Marcel Siem and he qualified for the event in Durban through his French Open win last year. He finished 14th on the money list too – having switched from Callaway equipment the previous year – so we're hoping for another stellar year from the German in his return to Mizuno!

For the rest of the players the first full field event takes place this week in Abu Dhabi so here's an update of where we are with our other contracted players for 2013.

Chris Wood's agreement also ended last month but I'm pleased to say we've successfully extended it. As an addition to the agreement he'll be wearing our technical apparel line from this season - that's the entire range – the full layering system – except for our trousers (hopefully he'll have some others though!).

Magnus A Carlsson, my "one to watch" this year, will also be with us following a great 2012 where he managed to secure his full card through finishing 4th on the Challenge Tour and, more impressively, 97th on the European Tour through a very limited number of starts.

Stalwarts like the big-hitting Ricardo Gonzalez and Ignacio Garrido remain, as does Peter Whiteford and Gary Orr who will also both be sporting our apparel line this year.

Tour School graduates Lasse Jensen and David Griffiths join the stable, and we're still supporting a few guys who'll be playing the majority of their events on the Challenge Tour – names such as Daniel Vancsik, Benjamin Hebert, Alvaro Velasco and David Dixon.

Daan Huizing is a 22 year old Dutchman who was #1 in the European Amateur rankings (and #3 in the World) before he turned professional at the end of last year. He made a big impression in 2012 by winning two of the biggest tournaments in British amateur golf within two months: the Lytham Trophy and the St. Andrews Links Trophy. He won by record-margins of 11 strokes at Lytham and 14 strokes at St. Andrews. He also posted a new record total of 23-under par at St. Andrews.

During 2010, 2011 and 2012, he won twelve national and international titles. In 2011 he won the International German Amateur title, followed by the Turkish Amateur and the Argentine Amateur titles. He'll be playing mostly on the Challenge Tour in 2013, having unfortunately failed to get his card at the School, but there is no doubt he'll make the big time in the near future. He's used our equipment for the past 2 years and I'm pleased to say that we've formalised that agreement so he's officially representing Mizuno this year.

Good luck with your own golf this year, catch up soon!

This is always one of my favourite threads, looking forward to see what the season brings.

Nice to see the stable being updated with exciting new talent too.

On a side note I see you've updated your bag details - mp64 (no surprise there) and JPX Proto.... such a tease.

This is the start of the season thread!

Very exciting!

It is always great to read such first-hand information. Many thanks!

Is there a chance to read the some information regarding the other contracted players (mainly those on the US tour, and the one player who tends to fare very well on both tours)?
