Tour Diary – October 2015

Matt Ford PGA Golfer Tour Diary

We’re into the final stretch now, and after missed cuts in the Porsche European Open and the Dunhill Links, I’m now one spot outside the Race to Dubai’s crucial top 110 for the first time since my runner-up finish in South Africa back in early March. I played really well in the KLM Open, with […]


Tour Diary – September 2015

My last two events -Made in Denmark and the Czech Masters – have at least seen me making cuts again. My game’s coming back, and I’m striking the ball a lot better, so I’m happy with that, although a little disappointed with how the weekends have gone (71st in Denmark and 73rd in the Czech Republic). But I feel I’m moving in the right direction again.


Tour Diary – August 2015

It’s the middle of August as I write this, and I’m currently two-thirds of the way through a three week tournament break, which has been nice. I’ve just had a week’s holiday where I haven’t picked up a club … actually, that’s not strictly true as my three-year-old, Oscar, is desperate to play golf at […]

The last few weeks, from the Nordea Masters through to France, haven’t been great for me in terms of results, and the main reason is that my swing has got a little off plane, so everything is a bit out of sync. I’ve had three sessions over the last few weeks working on it with […]

I’m delighted to report that just days after writing last month’s column, I headed to East London for the Africa Open, spent the whole week around the lead, and eventually finished runner up to earn my biggest ever cheque of €120,484. I jumped to around 40th on the Race to Dubai, and climbed 363 places […]


Tour Diary – March 2015

Matt Ford PGA Golfer Tour Diary

I’m writing this midway through a five-week globetrotting stint that has taken me to Thailand, India, and then South Africa for three weeks. I only found out I’d made it into the True Thailand Classic about three or four days before I flew, but thankfully it didn’t make too much difference to the flight costs! […]


Tour Diary – February 2015

Matt Ford PGA Golfer Tour Diary

The European Tour Begins After 11 long years as a pro, I’ve finally made it onto the European Tour after finishing fourth at Qualifying School last November. For those who don’t know much about me, I live in Bearsted near Maidstone, and played my amateur golf out of Bearsted Golf Club, where I still practice […]
