Laurie Canter is a English professional golfer who competes on both the European and Challenge Tours. Shining as an amateur player and winning both the South African and Spanish Amateur Championships, Laurie made the decision to turn professional in 2011.
He secured his European Tour card for the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons through Q-School and 2017 was his best golfing season to date. A tied 14th finish at the 2017 BMW SA Open was quickly followed by a win at the Dimension Data Pro-Am in the team event. The following week, Laurie tied 16th at the Joburg Open.
July 2017 was an exciting time for Laurie as he qualified for The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale through Final Stage of Qualifying. This was Laurie’s second Open Championship, as he competed as an amateur back in 2010. In 2017, Laurie finished off the tournament in a very respectable tie for 37th.
Laurie will compete on both the European and Challenge Tours for the 2018 season. He has started his season with solid finishes of T8 at the Barclays Kenya Open and T21 at the Tshwane Open.
"Wearing earphones while I practice and warm up at tournaments is part of my routine, and wireless Snugs are by far the best that I have worn so far. The comfort and fit in my ear blocks out all background noise and allows me to work hard on my game, without any distractions."
