Paul Lawrie has welcomed Carbon Financial’s support for a high profile Tartan Pro Tour event teed up for Perthshire in September. The business enjoys a long-standing corporate partnership with Blairgowrie Golf Club, which recently played host to the PGA Championship. Carbon is delighted to sponsor the “Blairgowrie Perthshire Masters 2021” which will see up-and-coming young Scots pros tackle the Rosemount and Lansdowne championship courses on September 28 and 29. The news has been warmly welcomed by 1999 Carnoustie Open winner and former Ryder Cup star Lawrie, who launched the Tartan Pro Tour last year to help provide home-grown talent with a stepping stone to the top tier.
Lawrie said: “We are delighted to announce Carbon Financial as the presenting sponsor for the Blairgowrie Perthshire Masters 2021 as the second half of the Tartan Pro Tour season continues.
“Carbon is already closely associated with golf development at Blairgowrie as one of the Perthshire club’s corporate supporters so it’s brilliant to have them involved with the Tartan Pro Tour as we continue to offer opportunities for aspiring male and female golfers to compete and develop, playing at some of Scotland’s best venues.
“The Tour events have been warmly welcomed by the professionals to augment schedules and playing opportunities which have been impacted by uncertainty created by the pandemic because of the inability to travel and also as a result of a number of the feeder Tours shutting down completely."
“I’d personally like to thank Carbon and managing director Gordon Wilson for their ongoing commitment to golf in Scotland and to the next generation of golfing talent.”
Blairgowrie has joined venues like Carnoustie, Muirfield, Royal Aberdeen and The Renaissance as tournament hosts on the 2021 Tour. Carbon managing director Mr Wilson said: “Paul has done so much for Scottish golf, past, present and future, and we are delighted to provide our support for the prestigious September event at Blairgowrie, where we enjoy a long-standing corporate partnership.”
Stuart Wilson, Blairgowrie managing secretary and one of Lawrie’s team of selectors for the rescheduled Junior Ryder Cup in Wisconsin, added: “We are thrilled to host the Tartan Pro Tour event.
“Given the positive feedback we have received since hosting the PGA Championships recently, I’m confident the professionals taking part will enjoy the all-round experience Blairgowrie has to offer."
