2018 has been an extraordinary year for golf management company
Jenahura as they continue to grow an impressive stable of tournament
professional golfers. In July, Team Jenahura's Richard McEvoy
completed an historic double in Hamburg, Germany when he claimed
victory with a dramatic birdie four at the final hole of the Porsche
European Open. McEvoy's first European Tour win came just seven
days after he lifted the Le Vaudreuil Challenge trophy on the
Challenge Tour. Two weeks later and it was the turn of Jenahura’s
most recent signing - Pedro Oriol who lifted the European Team
Championship trophy with compatriot, Scott Fernandez for Spain.
In 2019, Jenahura will launch the Jenahura Tour Academy (JTA).
JTA is an educational platform for aspiring tournament professional
golfers created by tournament professionals and supported by highly
respected industry experts which will include; Ryder Cup players,
European Tour winners, Tour caddies and several of the best specialist
coaches in the business.
JTA Seminars will consist of an intensive two-day campus enabling its
students to learn about all aspects of what it takes to be a successful
tournament professional golfer. It will provide crucial career advice for
players to gather essential information that will serve them well for the
short and long term.
Each JTA Seminar will have a maximum of 16 students. Follow-up JTA
Workshops covering individual specialist subjects will be held
throughout the year. In December 2019, at least one JTA student will
be offered a management/sponsorship contract with Jenahura worth
£10,000 for the following season.
JTA is aimed at men and ladies, amateurs and professionals who are
aspiring tour players looking to invest in their careers from the outset.
Students must be 18 or over and have a handicap of Scratch or better.
Tour Academy Director - Jamie Elson is very excited at the prospect
of the launch; “At Jenahura we have thought long and hard about
tournament professional’s needs. Golf is a multi-faceted sport and we
have been fortunate to establish an incredible group of experts to
provide priceless advice at the Tour Academy. Every successful
sportsman has a team of specialists surrounding them and Jenahura is
committed to providing such expertise to aspiring professionals from
the outset. We are certain that the academy will play an important
role in helping young people to learn more about the business they are
in, and how to succeed in it. It will be fantastic to help players achieve
Jenahura Group Managing Director - Martyn Norris added “Jamie and
I have been talking about setting something up to help aspiring tour
professionals for quite a while. We see a lot of extremely talented
young players who have enormous potential but in reality are under
prepared to take the giant step up to becoming a successful “Tour Pro”.
The Jenahura Tour Academy aims to bridge the knowledge gap and
provide the tools to advance their careers from the very beginning.
The lucrative Race to Dubai Final Series starts tomorrow in Turkey and
we felt it was an appropriate time to announce the launch of the
Jenahura Tour Academy with our Tour Ambassador - Richard
McEvoy sporting the JTA logo. “Maccas” as he is affectionately known
has agreed to be our JTA Tour Ambassador until the end of 2020 and
we cannot think of a better golfer or person to represent us. Richard
epitomises every quality needed to have a long and successful career
as a tour professional.”
