“Special Mention to Liam Fitzpatrick for playing all 10 events !!”
Well done to all the bowlers who stuck with it and played the 6 required events. Playing a “Tour” is a commitment, its hard work, it’s a test of not just your bowling ability, but your determination to succeed. It’s about getting up early, traveling up and down the country and most importantly picking yourself up and going again when you’ve had a bad event. Many players will start a “tour” but will fade away, usually after 1 or 2 bad events, but those who have the determination to carry on will eventually be rewarded when their drive and perseverance results in a return to form and either some good finishes or maybe a tournament win.
2019 Tour in numbers
