03 Aug Jordan Smith signs with Hambric Sports
One of the world’s most promising golfers, Jordan Smith, has today announced his decision to sign with Hambric Sports.
Now more than half-way through his second season on the European Tour, the 2017 Porsche European Open winner enjoyed a fast rise through the golfing ranks over the last number of years.
In 2015, Smith won the PGA Europro Tour’s Order of Merit, which saw him gain promotion to the European Challenge Tour for the 2016 season.
Following his graduation to the Challenge Tour, Jordan went on to claim victory at the Red Sea Egyptian Challenge, the RAK Golf Challenge and with numerous other strong performances throughout the season, Jordan topped the Challenge Tour’s 2016 Road to Oman rankings.
The 2017 season saw Jordan pick up his maiden European Tour victory at the Porsche European Open, following a thrilling play-off with Alexander Levy.
Jordan’s victory in Hamburg saw him qualify for his maiden major at the US PGA Championship, where he went on to finish tied 9th, which was the highest placed finish of any European player that week.
Currently, Jordan is ranked 135th in the Official World Golf Rankings and 60th on the 2018 Race to Dubai, thanks to a tied 3rd place finish at the Volvo China Open and tied 8th at the Italian Open.
