Congratulations on your Regional win Simon, 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 to the 3-hole play off?

The nerves are always present on the first tee but they never put me off my game, I'm not one to get flustered under pressure. I knew that if I stayed focused and concentrated on doing what I do best I would be able to post a competitive score.

How did you cope with the cameras on the day?

The playoff is where they get you and it's hard to forget they are there with so many about. I can't remember hitting a bad shot in the playoff though so I guess I coped with them pretty well.

Did you ever think, going into the day, that you would not only qualify for the International Grand Final but also be bringing home a Trilby Tour Regional Championship trophy?

I always felt like I had a chance going into the day. My confidence grew throughout the round as I started well and managed to continue my rhythm. I knew I had some tough competition in the playoff with local lad, Mark, as well as James and Rob but with a few glasses of wine in preparation of the playoff the nerves kept away.

 

How did you find the clothing?

Clothing is always great!

 

What has been your greatest achievement so far?

In golf, winning the Championship of Worcestershire. It was even sweeter to be the club house leader and to have played one of the best rounds of my life in front of the cameras. I can't wait to see it all play out of Sky Sports!

Describe yourself in a sentence...

Cool, calm and collected... 

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

I'll approach it the same as I did this year, one step at a time and above all to enjoy myself. It is even more exciting now that I have proven to myself I have the ability to win it.

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

Fantastic day and a great guy, I'm already looking forward to retaining my title in 2018!
