Chris Hanson heads back into European Tour action in Morocco having sent a huge message of congratulations to fellow Huddersfield golfer Rochelle Morris.

Hanson, who finished Tied 4th in the Challenge de Madrid on the Challenge Tour last week, tees it up on Thursday in the Trophee Hasson.

He’s not only pleased with his own form at the moment, but delighted for the 20-year-old Morris, who has been selected in the Great Britain & Ireland Curtis Cup team.

That’s the women’s amateur equivalent of the Ryder Cup and Solheim Trophy and Hanson said: “A huge congratulations to Rochelle Morris, who has been selected for the Curtis Cup , which is to be played against America this June in Dublin.

“After seeing the hard work she has put in at Woodsome with John Eyre, I was delighted to see her make the team – good luck Roch!”

Hanson added: “I’m now in Morocco for the Trophee Hasson on the European Tour, so hopefully I can build on last week’s great result.

“On day one in Madrid, I got it to two under but some below average putting through the back nine led to me finishing one over and down in 67th position.

“No panic, I knew my game was pretty good, and I walked off the 18th on day two having made no bogeys,which was a great feeling. And I’d moved up to 17th.

“On day three and in a two-club wind, I battled well and finished one under and Tied 2nd, which set me up for a fun final round.

“But a bogey, bogey start was a setback. I rallied with four birdies later and was back in the mix, but then two three-putts halted my challenge.

“Overall it was a really pleasing week – to feel like I got a reward for the effort I have put into my game recently, the ball bashing, the constant chipping and putting and then to get into contention felt great.

“And the main thing is that it was great preparation for this week on the European Tour.”
