The 28-year-old has enjoyed a rapid rise in the professional game over the last 12 months, winning four times on the Tartan Pro Tour on the way to being crowned order of merit champion and securing a full Challenge Tour card for the 2024 season.
Born and raised in the North-East of England, Rhys played out of Boldon Golf Club from the age of 8 and went on to represent Durham at boys’ and men’s level throughout his early amateur career.
He then achieved success at the University of Central Lancashire, representing the A team during his three-year term, which saw him win two league divisions and top the order of merit.
After successfully graduating, he turned professional at the end of the 2018 season and has been competing on satellite tours in the U.K.
After playing much of his golf on the Euro Pro Tour, this year Rhys played a full season on the Tartan Pro Tour and brought the curtain down on a brilliant year, winning the season-ending Gleneagles Masters to pick up his fourth win of the year and secure top spot in the order of merit. With his victory at Gleneagles – as well as his three wins in a row at the Dundonald Links Classic, Downfield Masters and Cardrona Classic – Rhys put together a sensational season and now graduates onto the Challenge Tour.
