WWW.IRISHGOLFER.IE Peter Finnan, on behalf of the team H aving been ranked #8 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings and expressed his de- sire to move to the professional game, it came as no surprise that Robin Dawson turned pro after the Home Internationals last week. Dawson had a stellar amateur career and finished it off with strong performances, albeit not the winning finish, he was known for at the Home Internationals. Having claimed victory at the Flo- gas Irish Amateur Open earlier in the season and finished in run- ner-up position at both The Am- ateur Championship and the Eu- ropean Amateur Championship, losing to England at the Home Internationals in his last amateur event obviously wasn't the goal, but Dawson himself played well. A proven winner, Dawson was selected to represent Europe at the Bonallack Trophy, the Great Britain and Ireland team at the St. Andrew's Trophy and Ireland at the World Amateur Team Championships, the European Amateur Championships and the Home Internationals and it now falls on him to transfer his winning mentality to the paid ranks as he joins with manage- ment company Hambric Sports. "I am delighted to be joining Hambric Sports and I'm confi- dent that they are the right fit for me", said Dawson. "Both of our values and priorities are the same and this stood out to me from the start. I'm excited for what lies ahead and look forward to taking my career to the next level." Ireland's Robin Dawson is the latest elite amateur to move to the paid ranks and he gets his first professional start at the Portugal Masters this week. DAWSON GETS PRO CAREER UNDERWAY Rocky Hambric, CEO of Ham- bric Sports said "Having fol- lowed Robin's progress for quite some time now, he has always impressed us both on and off the golf course and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Hambric Sports family. We know that he has an exciting future ahead and look forward to being with him every step of the way." Best of luck this week Robin! Robin Dawson. Photo credit Pat Cashman
