Third place

Mark Beattie (Ireland)

The former World No. 1, again continued to impress on the Tour with two final appearances including victory at the inaugural Norwegian Open. He finished the season with a very impressive 87.88% win ratio, winning 29 of his 33 matches.

Second place

Martin Harries (Wales)

Pipped at the post for this award but the likeable Welshman should be delighted with his season’s accomplishments. A fantastic Bronze Medal in February at the English Masters sees him finish 27th in the Order of Merit and he will have the honour of leading out the Welsh team at this years World Cup in August.

Winner

Joe Beattie (Ireland)
