European Tour Profile - Lloyd Saltman


Saltman is the grandson of former Hibernian goalkeeper Tommy Younger.

 He had a successful career as an amateur golfer, with wins in several

 prestigious tournaments including the 2003 Scottish Boys’ Championship,

 2005 Brabazon Trophy, 2005 St Andrews Links Trophy, 2007 Irish Amateur

 Championship, 2007 Lytham Trophy, and the 2007 Scottish Champion of

 Champions. In 2005 he finished 15th in The Open Championship at St

 Andrews, to win the Silver Medal as the low amateur having finished one

 stroke ahead of Eric Ramsay.

Saltman competed for Great Britain and Ireland in two Walker Cup

 matches, the first in 2005 and again in 2007. Shortly after his second

 appearance, he turned professional and attempted to qualify for the

 European Tour. However he failed to progress to the final stage of the

 qualifying school and, with limited guaranteed playing opportunities in

 Europe, decided to try for his card on the Asian Tour. He finished 31st at

the Asian Tour School at the end of 2007, to gain a place on the tour.

 However, because of the reputation he built up as an amateur, Saltman

 received invitations to many European Tour and Challenge Tour events

 during 2008, and played in just two tournaments on the Asian Tour,

 finishing in 17th place on his début in the SAIL Open.

At the end of 2008, Saltman returned to the European Tour's qualifying

 school, and although he reached the final stage after coming through a

 seven man playoff, he missed out on winning a European Tour card

 meaning he would have another season on the Challenge Tour in 2009.

In July 2009 Saltman and his brother Elliot both qualified for the Open

 Championship at Turnberry, to become the first brothers to appear

together in The Open since Seve and Manuel Ballesteros played at

 Birkdale in 1983. After two years on the European Challenge Tour

 Saltman gained a full European Tour Card in December 2010 by finishing

 11th in the Stage 3 of European Tour Qualifying School. His youngest

 brother Zack, is also a professional golfer.
