Congratulations on your second Regional Championship win of 2016 Brendan, how does it feel?

It feels absolutely unbelievable and a dream. Winning one was amazing but two was beyond my wildest dreams.

Tell us about your experience on the day. Did you feel like you had any added pressure on you at the beginning of the day after having already won at Meon Valley or did you relax and enjoy the day knowing you had already qualified for the Grand Final?

As I had already qualified for the World Championship Grand Final, all the pressure was off completely. The course was lovely and open similar to my home course, a very fair challange for a long slogger mostly offline. 


After coming in at Tudor Park in joint 125th place with 18 points, did you ever think you would finish the 2016 season having been crowned twice?

I had a one month period where I managed to practice due to my better half being away with the younger boys in Mexico, so really improved my game. This gave me a great opportunity of being a bit more consistant.

Have you played in any other Trilby Tour Regional Championships?

I play in at least 4 a year, and it is 4 years ago since I got in a playoff and never managed to make the finals over the last few years. 


How did you cope with the cameras on the day?

Being a Trilby Tour veteran, the more you play the easier it becomes.

Where is your trophy now?

It is in pride of place on the mantelpiece, next to the Championship of Hampshire one! 


Did you ever think you would get this far?

No, after not doing very well in my last 20 odd events, I never thought I would actually win one, let alone two!


Tell us about your background?

I started playing golf as a young boy but gave it up at 18. I had a 15 year gap, then started again for a short time. I then had another long gap and just over 5 years ago, I have been playing as often as I can.

How did you find the clothing?

The clothing is first class and I have trousers from 36 waist to 44 waist over my Trilby Tour career. My weight is up and down like a whores draws! Obviously the week I won I was at my optimum swing weight.


What has been your greatest achievement so far?

My greatest achievement has been fathering by 4 boys.

Describe yourself in a sentence...

Happy go lucky... (the girls in the office are typing this for me, laughing their heads off calling me a liar!)


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

I will send the wife off with the children again as I did this year for a fortnight in a far away country and play some golf during that time.

What's your motto in life?

God is good, the devil ain't so bad.


Who is your golf hero?

My golfing hero is Tom Watson, true gentleman.


Any last words for William Hunt and the Trilby Tour Team?

All I would like to say is a big thank you to all of them and to keep up the great work as we see the effort you put in week in and week out.
