Raymond captures first pro win on Toro Tour

Must Read

St Annes professional Cameron Raymond has claimed his maiden title on the pro circuit with a win on the Toro Tour in Spain.

Raymond bounced back from an understandably rusty opening round of 76 with a stunning seven birdie, no bogey round of 64 to take the title by two strokes at two-under par.

“Nice to get my first pro win out here in Spain on the Toro Tour,” said Raymond. “Very grateful for the opportunity to practice and compete with the current situation. Massive thanks to SP Golf Academy for all the work we’ve done. Nice to get over the line.”

It’s a great start to the year for Raymond, one of many satellite tour players fighting for starts amid Covid-19. He went into 2021 having earned the maximum category 3 status at Q-School last October to earn his stripes on the EuroPro Tour and has laid to perfect foundations on which to build with the EuroPro set for a May return in Luton.

Also competing in Spain was Royal Dublin’s Hugh Foley and Roganstown’s Patrick Keeling with the two amateurs tying third at two-over par. Sean Keeling and Daniel Mulligan completed the Irish line-up.
