Jamie still confident ahead of Seville event

COLCHESTER golfer Jamie Moul is looking forward to a big push as he starts up his European Tour exploits in Seville next month, writes Mike Bacon.

With the Tour currently in the Far East, Moul didn’t land a starting place in Malaysia last week, in a tournament won by Louis Oosthuizen. Neither will be playing in China nor South Korea over the next two weeks, with local players taking up many of the spots.

But when the Tour returns to Europe – in Spain – on May 3, Moul, who has so far won almost 26,000 euros this season after making three cuts, hopes to kick on.

“I’ve been a bit inconsistent, but I haven’t been playing badly,” he said.

“I think I will probably have another 16, maybe 20 events and if I keep making the cuts, the money will keep building. Last season you needed about 240,000 euros to keep your European card, but that was with a 13-month season.

“It’s 12 months this time, but I still think I will need 220,000 euros to get in the top 115 and retain my card.”

Moul has shown some good form with two low second round scores in India and Morocco. And it’s those scores that keep him feeling positive.

“One good week can make you on Tour,” he said.

“My putting has been consistent which is crucial, it’s just that the rest of my game has been in fits and starts.

“But I feel okay and confident going forward.”

Moul has had a couple of weeks off since his last event in Qatar, where a second round 66 saw him make the cut.

“I’ve been taking it easy the for a couple of weeks and have put the clubs away,” he admits.
