It’s a fantastic result for the 29-year old Northamptonshire player, who had no previous experience of playing on the famous Ayrshire links venue, and who only turned pro in 2014 after giving up his previous job of working in a call centre selling Avon Cosmetics. Glazerite has been a main sponsor of Ryan, who made his professional debut at the 2014 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, for the last couple of years, helping him rise from the amateur ranks to his current world ranking of 538. John Hewitt, Group Chairman at The Glazerite UK Group Limited, said: “I first got to know Ryan at Wellingborough Golf Club when he was making a name for himself as an amateur, so it’s been fantastic to watch him progress to his first major at Royal Troon – especially as he’s an ambassador for Glazerite. “We’re extremely proud to sponsor Ryan, he’s hugely passionate and focused, and these are attributes that are a perfect fit to our business ethos.” www.glazeritewindows.
