Marshall has it all to do in Tour’s grand final
Norfolk golfer Andrew Marshall requires a top two finish in this week's final Challenge Tour event of the season to earn a return to the big time.
The Dereham professional goes into the Apulia San Domenico Grand Final in Italy in 36th position in the Tour rankings, with only the top 20 making it through to the full European Tour.
To make the necessary climb Marshall will need to play out of his skin in the elite event, featuring the Tour's top 45 players, which gets under way on Wednesday.
The Norfolk player's recent good form continued on Saturday when he recorded a three under par round of 69 for a four under finish in the Egyptian Open and a tie for 16th position.
That earned him a pay cheque for a little over �2,000, to add to the �7,800 he earned in his previous tournament in Rome.
