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

Absolutely delighted, a great day with an even better result!

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

I was more nervous on the 1st tee. I believed that if I could get myself into the playoff I would win it.



Have you played in any other regional Trilby Championships?

Yes, 2017 Trilby Tour Championship of Cumbria.

How did you cope with the cameras on the day?

Fine, I knew I must have been doing OK when the cameras turned up on 16!



Where is your trophy now?

Pride of place on the kitchen table.


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 was playing well, I was just focused on trying my best to get into the playoff.. then go from there.


Tell us about your background?

I am originally from the great City of Manchester and moved up to Cumbria in 2001. I have been married to my beautiful wife Caron for 18 years. Caddying for my Grandad during the school summer holidays got me into golf. I then joined my first club Ashton-on-Mersey Golf Club at the age of 14 with my first handicap being 26. After 33 years of playing this daft game of golf, I still love every aspect of it!

What has been your greatest achievement so far?

Winning the Trilby Tour in the fashion that I did, holing the putt on the last was quite simply the cream on an already delicious cake!



Describe yourself in a sentence...

Slightly overweight but still extremely handsome, with a rather mean competitive streak!


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

Practice hard and play event better!



What's your motto in life?

Work hard, play even harder!


Who is your golf hero?

Seve Ballesteros


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

Many thanks for another fantastic day, superbly ran by the ever professional Trilby Tour Team. I am looking forward to catching up with you all at Hull Golf Club.
