Richard Bland

One of the European Tour's most consistent performers, Bland has been a member on the European Tour for the majority of the last two decades.

The Englishman graduated from the Challenge Tour on four occasions, most recently in 2019, when at the age of 46 he was the oldest player to earn his card.

He made history in 2021 at the Betfred British Masters by becoming the oldest first-time winner in European Tour history, where he defeated Guido Migliozzi in a play-off to earn his maiden title during his 478th appearance.

Is a close friend of former Southampton football star Matthew Le Tissier, who in the past has carried the bag for Bland.
