Bob Rehill Associate Network are proud to sponsor Pro Golfer and Sussex PGA Winner Jonny Ingram. In the second of a series of posts, we look at how the 2019 season is going and what his aims are for the rest of the year.
The 2019 season is going really well for Jonny Ingram so far, with twelve top ten finishes and good scores throughout. “I seem to be finishing in the top six in most events and it’s just finding that missing secret to get those wins I’ve set as goals. I’ve a lot more to come including my National PGA Assistants Championship in Blackburn. My aims are still to get two wins under my belt by the end of the year and feel if I keep doing what I’m doing then I’ll have every chance. The dedication and confidence is there I’m just needing a bit of luck.”
Jonny believes the hardest part of competing whilst also working full time is the lack of practice and the spare time he is able to take advantage of. “Because I also work in a golf shop and do a lot of golf teaching, it means most of my time is taken up for that to ensure I make a good living for my financial responsibilities. However, what Bob’s sponsorship does for me is allow me to go out and compete throughout the year and earn extra money doing what I love best, which is competing.”

Unfortunately, the initial goal of finishing on the Top 10 of the Order of Merit may be a tough ask now as Jonny had to miss three events in the programme, but his plans for the next couple of years include trying to redesign his working pattern to ensure he can get enough practise time in and to play a fuller competition schedule. “That way, I will get the consistency and volume of tournaments I need to play my best. My only concern for that is ensuring I’m financially stable, however competing more will help the standard of my game improve and be more sustainable so it’s a risk I’m willing to take and feel confident I can keep moving forward.”
We wish Jonny all the best with the rest of the 2019 season and beyond!
