AN­GRY GOLFERS

“I see peo­ple throw­ing clubs on the golf course, but I al­ways look at them and think ‘what’s the point?’ When you hit a golf ball, no one is hit­ting a golf ball back at you. There are worse places than be­ing on the golf course, trust me. You could be get­ting shot at!”

BE­ING CALLED A HERO

“When you get blown up and sur­vive, peo­ple call you a hero. But I don’t think I’m a hero. If I’d known there was a bomb in the ground, I wouldn’t have gone over it. What hap­pened to me doesn’t make me a hero. The lads who saved my life and put me back to­gether are he­roes. One of my best mates was the first per­son to get to me, and then he had to con­tinue his tour in Afghanistan. That, to me, is a hero.”

PLAY­ING WITH TOMMY FLEET­WOOD

“That was one of my best ex­pe­ri­ences. He was re­ally down to earth, and gave me loads of re­ally good ad­vice. I didn’t re­alise at the time but he took a video of me swing­ing on a tee, and when we were in the club­house af­ter­wards he was show­ing it to Tyrrell Hat­ton. About two weeks later, he then mes­saged me ask­ing how I was get­ting on. Then, when I was on the Open Zone on the Satur­day, I texted him, know­ing he had missed the cut, and said: ‘How p ***** off are you that I’ve hit more balls on the week­end of an Open than you?’ I didn’t get a re­ply to that one!”
