"Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one. Unless I go up the opposite fairway."
From our first Major at Hellidon Lakes in 2013 to the latest at Greetham Valley in June 2016, here is a list of the former champions and the venue's where they found success.
We are waiting for Phil's press office to release a statement.
"I have to say I really enjoyed thetwo rounds we played at Greetham Valley, two really good courses.
I'm disappointed at not being in contention but if you're not straight off the tee you've got no chance.
I'm really pleased there were no winners and everyone decided to come 3rd."
Tony is still pencilling his statement.
"Everything happens for a reason, but sometimes the reason is that we're just shit at golf."
If you need to contact us in anyway, please feel free...
Each major brings various different stories, both on the golf course and off it.. Lets concentrate on the ones that were ON the course..
After a good first round the leaderboard was closer at the half way stage than ever before.
Leon Hendricks and Matt Etheridge lead the way with 35 and 34 points respectively, closely followed with 33 points by Tony Newbold and Mark Russell. Russell sneaking in with par par on the 17th and 18th on the Valley course.
Adam Dale, although would be teeing off in the first group on day two found himself only 4 points off the lead with 31, and very much in contention.
Day two and everyone as usual is hungover. Same boat for all 8 players so no excuses. Tony and Mark jump above Leon and Matt after 9 holes shooting 21 (Tony) and 19 (Mark) points for the front half of the Lakes course.
With Russell out of contention on the 17th Newbold gets a birdie to take a 1 point lead into the final hole. Matt Etheridge and Leon both score 3 points on that last hole and Tony shows his quality with a point making this tournament a 3 way tie. All three players scoring 70 points.
Matt Woodman enters his first tournament and sets his stall out for a win. Showing quality shots from the off and lead the way along with former champion Phil Etheridge at the end of day one.
After many drinks and a lot of taunting on the night out it was debut boy Woody who came through. Producing quality golf to pull off a great win.
