Sports science aiding golfer Shaw

Lurgan golfer Gareth Shaw hopes that using sports science will help him earn a European Tour card in Girona next week.

Shaw will begin his challenge at the Catalunya Resort on Saturday with just the leading 25 and ties earning European Tour Cards for next season after the six-round marathon.

The Lurgan man and his coach Johnny Foster have been working with Professor Eric Wallace at the Sports Institute of Northern Ireland's golf facility at Jordanstown.
