Hambric Sports are pleased to announce the signing of French professional and former French number one amateur, Martin Couvra.
Following on from his victory at the Challenge de España in September, Martin made the decision to join the professional ranks.
Martin became only the seventh player in history to win on the Challenge Tour as an amateur and his victory in Spain helped him to finish the 2023 season ranked 46th on the Road to Mallorca rankings, therefore solidifying a full Challenge Tour card for 2024.
Having had an incredibly successful amateur career, which included numerous worldwide wins, it is clear that Couvra has a very bright future in global golf ahead of him.
2023 saw Martin claim victory at the Open d’Arcachon and most notably, back-to-back wins at the South African Stroke Play Championship and the South African Amateur Championship and also the Proudfoot Trophy.
With this, Martin became the first European to win all three of South Africa’s major amateur titles in the one season, affectionately known as the triple crown.
“I am very happy to be joining the team at Hambric Sports”, said Martin. “I know that their guidance and support will be a huge help to me as I begin my career as a professional golfer. I’m excited about the journey that we have ahead of us together”.
“We have been following Martin’s results for quite some time now and to see him win on the Challenge Tour in Spain, as an amateur, was incredibly impressive”, said Rocky Hambric, Founder of Hambric Sports. “We look forward to working with Martin and his team as he begins, what we’re sure will be a long and successful career in the professional game”.
