Marcus Armitage: "There is nothing better"

Marcus Armitage dreams to win Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett.

Marcus Armitage, statements

"There is nothing better than playing in front of your home crowd. To win in front of your home crowd must be unbelievable.

I would love to experience it. Maybe it will be tomorrow, maybe some time in the future but hopefully one day I will be able to experience winning in front of my home crowd. It is just different; we love golf in this country.

You can just see it with the crowds. They are very knowledgeable about the game. It is just fantastic" "I have just been patient really. I have hit a lot of greens and played away from flags a lot, just played the patient game.

I had a tough week last week at the Catalunya Championship. I have come here and just got back to basics with my golf swing, being patient and just trying to get the putter working" Armitage earned rookie of the year honours on the 2013 PGA EuroPro Tour.

He also won on tour as part of fourteen total victories for the year. Over the 2014 season, Armitage reworked his swing. Armitage won twice on the 2015 PGA EuroPro Tour, finished fourth in the money list, and earned his tour card for the 2016 Challenge Tour.

Armitage won the 2016 Foshan Open on the Challenge Tour. He was also a runner-up in the Volopa Irish Challenge and finished 11th in the Order of Merit to earn his tour card for the 2017 European Tour. Armitage had a disappointing season in 2017 and lost his card on the main tour.

He made a useful start of the 2018 Challenge Tour season with a runner-up finish in the Belt & Road Colorful Yunnan Open. He had two moderate seasons on the Challenge Tour, finishing 50th in the 2018 Order of Merit and 85th in 2019.

However he earned a return to the European Tour with a good performance in the European Tour Q School. In January 2020, he recorded his best finish on the European Tour at the time, when he was third in the South African Open.
