Exciting youngster Haydn McCullen has decided to turn professional after joining the ISM stable last year.

Manchester golfer Haydn, 18, who is sponsored by Under Armour and the Morson Group and attached to Delamere Forest GC, played his first professional tournament in the Bank of Oman Classic on the Challenge Tour in October.

Winner of the prestigious McEvoy Trophy last year, Haydn regularly represented England throughout the youth age groups and is excited about joining the professional ranks.

Starting with this week’s Mediter Real Estate Masters, he will play events on the Ecco Tour and the MENA Tour as he looks to establish himself.

Haydn said: “I’m really looking forward to getting out there and playing. It’s definitely going to be a step up from what I’m used to but I feel ready for it.

“I’ve been working towards this for a long time and it’s exciting.”

ISM chief executive officer Chubby Chandler said: “We’re delighted to be guiding Haydn through this pivotal time in his career.

“He’s another young player with a lot of potential and playing in professional tournaments on a regular basis will help him develop and fulfil it.”

In 2013, Haydn became the first player to win both Lancashire’s county and boys’ championships in the same season.
