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

Extremely pleased and unexpected as I hadn't been playing too well up until the competition.

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 felt more nervous on the first tee than I did in the play off. In the play off I felt calm.



Have you played in any other regional Trilby Championships?

I played in the 2017 Championship of Norfolk also.

How did you cope with the cameras on the day?

I actually didn't really notice them.



Where is your trophy now?

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?

My goal was to qualify for the final but I did not expect to win.


Tell us about your background?

I've been playing golf since 1992. I joined Barnham-on-Crouch in 1995. I've won club championship 5 times at Burnham and have recently been asked to be Burnham's Vice Captain which I have accepted.

How did you find the clothing?

Very smart and comfortable.


What has been your greatest achievement so far?

Being asked to become Vice Captain as well as winning the Trilby Tour Championship of Norfolk.



Describe yourself in a sentence...

Hardworking and committed.


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

I will be looking forward to it and hoping to play as well as I did this year.



What's your motto in life?

Live every day as your last


Who is your golf hero?

Tiger Woods


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

It's been a great experience which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Extremely well organised, so well organised I've lost my caddy for next year as he also wants to play, and a big thank you to Bawburgh Golf Club.
