The English Open runs from October 16 to 22 and it’s the first of the season’s Home Nations series.

On the other hand they still haven’t published the draw and format for the Shanghai Masters Qualifiers that run next week! But Ronnie (apparently sat in a train) was again on a roll on twitter and, amongst many other things (nutrition, running, his books, another hustle, tour structure) posted this:

Yeah my agent got me a good deal so Shanghai is on

So that’s good news.
