Moral of the story? Never give up
It most likely went under the radar for many of you but last weekend saw the Amateur Championship take place at both Royal St George's and Princes. Not only does the winner join a stellar list of past champions including Sergio Garcia, Jose Maria Olazabal and more recently Matteo Manassero, but they also secure a place at that year's Open Championship as well as the following year's US Open and Masters Tournament.
After 18 holes stroke play at both Royal St George's and Princes, 288 of the world's best amateurs were whittled down to just 64, going on to compete in match play golf at Royal St George's until only one remained.
The 36-hole final was fiercely competitive with no golfer able to build more than a one-hole lead over the opening 18 holes. The second 18 was a different story, with Australian Dylan Perry winning four holes in a five-hole stretch to find himself 4up with just nine holes remaining. With one hand on the trophy, Perry's grip started to slip as he lost four of the final five holes to finish the match A/S, eventually going on to lose at the 38th hole to Englishman Harry Ellis - an outcome which seemed highly unlikely a couple of hours prior.
