Here is an overview of the best Brits and how they are measuring up in each tour. Taking a look at this last weekend’s tournaments and where the British golfers ranked. As a result, seeing where the lads stand in the official world ranking and predictions for upcoming tournaments.
European Tour: Great success on their own soil
Starting of with the European Tour, the British golf pros have been making headlines with Danny Willet bringing home the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship trophy. He came in 18 under par while Tyrell Hatton came in at T2 and Richard Bland in at T4. This is only the third occasion on this European Tour for Willet to come in Top 10. “I’m not sure what to say,” said Willet, who earned €674.856. “I’ve had a great time. I’ve just come through a couple of years of average stuff. Again. I seem to do that quite a lot, go up and down. But I’ve been working hard. People don’t necessarily see what goes on behind the scenes. So this is a good one for me.” Whatever has been going on behind the scenes obviously benefitted him for this weekend. It also may have been a bit of birthday luck.
Challenge Tour: Thomson is working his way up the rankings lists
Moving on to the Challenge Tour which consisted of the Swiss Challenge hosted at Golf Saint Apollinaire, Michelbach-Le-Haut, France. British golfer Jonathon Thomson came in at T2 and finishing 24-under-par. He currently sits at 99 on the Challenge Tour Ranking and 533 on the OWGR. He has currently made €29,455.43 in his 2021 golf career.
LPGA: Shadoff shows-off her skills in this past tournament
Looking at the LPGA, we can focus on the English professional golfer Jodi Ewart Shadoff. She recently came in at T7 at the Shoprite LPGA Classic. It is her first top 10 this season coming in front of well known ladies such as Georgia Hall and Charley Hull who rolled in at T57. Shadoff said she “had to fight for this one” but a fight well done. This success puts Shadoff at 104 in the Rolex Rankings.

Ladies European Tour: Dimmock gives it all she’s got before heading home
The Ladies European Tour resulted in only one English lady in the top ten and 11 other players making it before the cut. Annabel Dimmock who slid in at T10 and earned herself €5,375.00 in tournament winnings. “Happy with my T10 this week – Home time now” said Dimmock on her Instagram shortly after the tournament.
PGA Tour: Quite disappointing for the lads
Lastly the PGA Tour where the Sanderson Farms Championship was played at the Country Club of Jackson, in Jackson, Mississippi. Unfortunately, no British golfers made the cut including Aaron Rai and Matt Wallace who both had bad luck on this tournament. However, they both sit in the top 100 on the OWGR. Perhaps they will move up that ranking next week.
