Curtis Griffiths

Back to Golf

24-year-old Curtis Griffiths is a professional golfer and a graduate of the Wentworth Scholarship programme. After starring on his debut season on the Challenge Tour, Curtis regained his card for 2018 where he looks set to take his career to new heights.

2017 saw Curtis make the step up from the PGA EuroPro Tour to the Challenge Tour where he made an instant impact during his debut year. Continued success through the year helped Curtis to regain his Challenge Tour status for 2018. 2017 also saw Curtis make an appearance on the Algarve Pro Tour for the Palmares Classic IV where the Surrey-based golfer took the outright victory. 

In 2016, Griffiths enjoyed an excellent year on the Euro Pro Tour, picking up thirteen top-ten finishes, one tied win and an excellent performance at The Matchroom Sport Championship saw him walk away as the outright winner. Finishing 3rd on the Order of Merit on the PGA Euro Pro tour, Curtis qualified for the 2017 Challenge Tour and reignited his dream of playing on the European Tour.

After missing the 2014 season due to glandular fever, Curtis made his comeback the following year on the Euro Pro Tour. After coming through qualifying at Burhill and then Frilford Heath, where he closed a three-round test with a best of the week six-under-par 66, Griffiths secured his place on the Euro Pro tour for 2016.

In 2013, Griffiths turned professional and soon made his mark; winning on the Jamega Tour at Mentmore Golf Club and finishing fourth in the Order of Merit. After just missing the cut for the final round of the European Tour Qualifying School, he joined the Alps Tour but played in only two of the tour’s events before having to visit the doctors with fatigue symptoms. These symptoms pre-empted his contraction of glandular fever which he spent the whole of the 2014 season recovering from.

A promising graduate of the Wentworth Scholarship programme, Griffiths enjoyed an outstanding record as a junior. At the age of just 15, he only missed out on becoming the youngest ever qualifier for The Open Championship and in 2011 he was third in the Titleist Footjoy EGU Boys Order of Merit. That year he only just missed out on the Fairhaven trophy in the play-off and finished fourth in the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters.
