Congratulations on your Regional win Kevin!

Thank you very much! It was an amazing experience!

 

What made you choose your venue? 

I won entry to the Trilby Tour at the annual Futura Group Charity Golf Day auction, which was kindly donated by William Hunt.

 

Tell us about your experience on the day. How did you feel you played?

It is something all Amateur Golfers dream about! Playing in front of camera. I went into the day not playing very well so I didn’t have any great expectation on doing very well. But in the end I played as good as I have all year.

Have you played in many other Trilby Championships?

This was my first time!

 

How did you cope with the cameras on the day?

They didn’t really bother me on the 18 holes. It wasn’t until the play off when I began to realise they were there.

Where is your trophy now?

Its in the lounge, pride of place. It’s in the middle of mantel piece. Most of my trophies go to my Mums, but not this one it's a biggie.

Did you ever think you would get this far?

No, not really! Judging by the way I was playing around the regional Championship. I was not in the best of form! I was there just to enjoy the game and take in the experience. I had a big day the next day.  It was my wedding day down in Gretna Green!

Tell us about your background?

I started playing golf at an early age, around 12 or 13, and I’ve not looked back since. I have made some great friends along the way and had many great away days and holidays.

 

How did you find the clothing?

I have been out and purchased some more gear and hopefully more will follow. Its top quality!

 

What has been your greatest achievement so far?

This has to be right up there with the biggest thing I have won on my own. I say on my own, but also a big thank you to my caddie Alan Turner. Hopefully it will be the first achievement of many.

Describe yourself in a sentence...

Easy go lucky.

 

How will you go about defending your Trilby Tour Championship title next year?

Go about it the same way. Treat it as a holiday and play some golf in between. Hopefully I’ll win it once again.

What's your motto in life?

Enjoy life to the full, you never know what’s round the corner.

 

Who is your golf hero?

Seve! [Ballesteros]

 I had the privilege to meet Seve when he opened the PGA golf academy at Belfry

 

Any last words for William Hunt?

Fantastic day! Great tournament! All amateur golfers should give it a try. I’m looking forward to next year. Hopefully I can defend my title!
