Short Description:
My Role This Week:

This week I’m the European Tour Press Officer at the Omega European Masters. I’m hosting player press conferences, working with the promoters to manage local media requests, arranging interviews for our broadcast partners and producing reports from the tournament.

I packed up my OGIO bags and headed to Switzerland this week, and one of the most spectacular locations on Tour.  It’s my first time at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club and it’s easy to see why everyone is keen to work at the Omega European Masters. I have been to Switzerland many times before and I’m always blown away by the scenery, but I don’t think words can describe these views from the signature seventh hole, and the camera really doesn’t do it justice.

We’ve got a pretty special field here, with World Number Two and four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy joined by a host of top European players including Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood and fellow Major winner Sergio Garcia. But we’ve also had some other big names drawing the crowds this week, with music star Justin Timberlake joining Rory in a celebrity pro-am field which also included fellow musician Niall Horan and actors Michael Pena and Dennis Quaid.

Another unique aspect to this event is the proximity of the course to the town. The first tee is practically on the main street in Crans – surrounded by chalets and restaurants – and most of the players can walk to the tee from their hotel in less than ten minutes. It makes for a great atmosphere in the evenings too, with so many great restaurants close by.

It’s no surprise that mountains feature in pretty much all of my photos this week. Tournaments certainly keep us busy, but I always try to get out and see some of our surroundings, particularly in somewhere as picturesque as this. I managed to take some time for an evening hike, and the views were as stunning as you would expect.
