Fraser Mann (Carnoustie) who joined The Gecko Tour and The Players Academy in December has been reaping the rewards with superb start to his season. Playing on the Seniors Tour Circuit, Mann finished 1st & 2nd straight after his academy training experience. A fine player who also won the Scottish PGA in 2002 at Gleneagles, Fraser is also involved with the Scottish National Teams and is also responsible for Player Development at the famous Carnoustie Golf Club. An article that appeared in May 2015 describes his most recent success:
Fraser Mann wins Senior P.G.A. Professional Championship
Carnoustie Golf Club member Fraser Mann claimed one of the biggest titles of his long career in the Senior PGA Professional Championship, at Foxhills in Surrey. “It’s now straight back on the road as I’m coaching at 9am on Saturday at Carnoustie,” said the 55-year-old after easing to a six-shot victory.
Mann finished the final round on Thursday, May 14th, in level-par 73 for a two-under aggregate of 216, the only player in the field to finish under par for the 54-hole tournament.
Mann’s last significant win came 13 years ago when the Carnoustie stalwart won both the Northern Open and the Scottish PGA Championship. “It’s just great,” said Mann, who was the club pro at Musselburgh for almost two decades. “I’ve won a few things in Scotland but this is my first national title.” His success at Foxhills earned him a cheque for £5250 as well as a place in next month’s ISPS Handa PGA Senior Championship on the European Senior Tour.
