A Busy Winter Ahead for George MullinsThe winter in the United Kingdom is often a period of reflection for amateur golfers. Golf courses and the weather are not at their best and time on the course can be very limited.
However, for George Mullins there is no time for rest and reflection during the winter months, as the young English golfer began by preparing to participate in the potential career changing King Hamad Trophy in Bahrain.
This year was the 10th playing of the King Hamad Trophy and the winner of the event received a prize of €8,000. However, the real prize on offer here was the European Tour start which would be awarded to the winner of the tournament.
The event was held at the Royal Golf Club in Bahrain, featuring an 18-hole golf course designed by Scotland's Colin Montgomerie.
The greens are known for being quick and they did not disappoint. The fast greens coupled with the large waste bunkers and water hazards, the latter of which come into play strongly on the final four holes, make Royal Golf Club a true test of ability.
Given the calibre of players in this event and the prizes on offer, this was always going to be a tough ask for Mullins but having travelled over to Bahrain from Europe, the 20-year-old gave a great account of himself.
Yes, by his own admission it was not the result Mullins craved, who was happy to state on social media platform Twitter that it was not the result he wanted. However, having shot a 76 in the second round, which saw Mullins drop off the pace of the leaders, he showed great character and ability to come back in the third and final round.
Mullins scored a two under par 70 in the third round, to finish on one over par for the tournament.
Numerous players struggled to get to grips with the course and there were some massive scores posted by good golfers, which puts into perspective the final score achieved by Mullins.
Not only did Mullins finish with a good final round, the experience gained from travelling and playing in an event like the King Hamad Trophy will be of huge value going forward this winter.
Next up for Mullins, following a week at home is a trip to Portugal to play in four Algarve events which are due to start towards the end of November and they conclude on the 13th December.
Playing on the Portugal Pro Tour, which combines the work of both the Jamega Pro Tour and PGA Portugal, will be another great experience for Mullins and will allow him to further develop his game.
With a short break at Christmas, it's then back to Portugal for January and February.
Winter is set to be a busy time for Mullins but with a prize fund of over €5,000 to play for and the continued development of his game, there is no rest for a player who is determined to make it to the top of the sport.
