Connor Syme Biography – Connor Syme Wiki
Connor Syme is a Scottish professional golfer who plays on the European Tour. He turned professional in 2017 and earned his first professional win on the Challenge Tour at the 2019 Turkish Airlines Challenge, defeating Francesco Laporta with a birdie on the first play-off hole at the season-opening event.
Syme had a fantastic amateur career reaching number 8 in the World Amateur Ranking. Highlights of his amateur career included winning the 2016 Australian Amateur Championships and being the low medalist, winning the stroke play at the 2016 Amateur Championship at Royal Porthcawl and Pyle & Kenfig Golf Club, shooting a bogey-free 68 (−3) in the second round to come out on top. In addition to this, he was top points scorer in Scotland’s successful defence of the European Team Championship and represented Scotland in the Eisenhower Trophy. Connor also represented the Great Britain & Ireland team and helped them to retain the St Andrews Trophy.

Syme followed this great start to his professional career by securing a 2018 European Tour card after ten gruelling rounds at European Tour school.
