Congratulations on your Regional win Nigel, how does it feel?

Now that I have had time to reflect and replay every shot in my mind, it feels tremendous. 


Tell us about your experience on the day. How do you feel the nerves compared from the 1st tee and then playing the 3-hole play off?

The nerves on the first tee are like nothing I have ever experienced before. My caddy Colin Carr have me non-stop words of encouragement all day, Thank you Colin! I was excited and managed to contain the nerves and focus on the 3-hole play off.
