Inder van Weerelt
Inder van Weerelt was born in Amsterdam, on May 14, 1980. He learned the game of golf at Vilamoura Old Course in Portugal at the age of 7 and lived in Portugal until 1997.
Inder was active in many different sports but eventually decided to move to The Netherlands to pursue his ambition in the game of golf.
He joined the boys national team and went on to represent The Netherlands in many international events including the Eisenhower Trophy (World Cup) on two occasions; Berlin in 2000 and Kuala Lumpur in 2002.
After a succesful amateur career and having become national player of the year 5 times in a row (1999-2003) he turned professional at the end of 2003 and made the cut at the Dutch Open.
His first professional win came on the Europro Tour (Cardrona Classic) where he shot rounds of 66, 67, 66.
Inder spent 3 years on the European Challenge and managed to fight his way through the qualifying school and finished T19th to earn himself a European Tour card in 2009.
After a wrist injury and a loss of form, Inder is now combining playing tournaments with doing the PGA training course and co-commentates for TV channel Sport 1.
