“Now I want to capitalise on this win and get back into playing tournament golf across Europe in the next two years. It’s been a tough few years golf-wise with work, studying for the PGA qualifications and having a young family. The European Disabled Golf Association events have become a lot bigger in that time and are enjoying a lot more publicity, and I want to improve my world ranking and compete in the biggest events right across Europe.
“This win and returning to competitive golf have been made possible by my sponsors – Charlie Douthwaite at CDMD Roofing Ltd and The Fire Centre in Middlesbrough – and I can’t thank them enough for giving me this opportunity.
“I also have to thank my family for all their support this year, in particular my dad for caddying in the final at Tynemouth.”
