Congratulations on your Regional win Tom!

It is great to win! When I first saw the Trilby Tour on Sky Sports, I made it my aim to win a Regional Championship!

 

What made you choose your venue? 

I'm local to Sprowston Manor and have played there many times before. 

 

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

I hit the ball very well and gave the greens lots of respect as they were very fast, I feel that I played well because I had a very good caddy and managed to maintain concentration throughout the round.

Have you played in many other regional Trilby Championships?

Yes, Sprowston Manor and the Grand Final last year.

 

How did you cope with the cameras on the day?

People react differently to the cameras on the day; I just tried to focus and hit a good shot for TV when I saw one and not end up in the Rouge's Gallery!

Where is your trophy now?

My trophy takes pride of place on the mantelpiece. 

 

Did you ever think you would get this far?

I knew I could hit the golf shots required, however under the pressure I really had no idea how I would react!

 

Tell us about your background?

I am a student studying at the University of East Anglia.

 

How did you find the clothing?

The clothing was comfortable and everybody looked very smart.

 

What has been your greatest achievement so far?

This is definitely my biggest golfing achievement and getting my place at university is also a huge achievement of mine.

Describe yourself in a sentence...

I am determined and focused but still know how to have a good time!

 

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

Same as this year, lots of practice and hope it all comes together on the day.

Any last words for William Hunt?

William and his team do a great job running the events, they always run smoothly and it is a great day for everyone involved. Keep up the good work!
