commented: “This has been a very exciting year for me so far, topped off by my success at Rockcliffe Hall in a nail-biting finale. I have also loved playing in the Challenge Tour and have put in some creditable performances, despite a bout of illness. In footballing terms, I’m now in the Championship, within touching distance of the Premier League.

“One of the key reasons for my success has been the support and sponsorship of the Northallerton-based CTS UK, the flourishing business supply chain specialists. In all honesty, CTS’s sponsorship has been a game-changer, allowing me to concentrate on my game without worrying about anything else.

“CTS’s generous support, together with that of WS Transportation, has had immense benefits on my mental health and wellbeing, enabling me to enjoy my golf without any distractions. I can now concentrate 100 per cent on every hole in every round I play, which has paid dividends.

“It is certainly not cheap travelling to places like South Africa, with substantial travelling and accommodation costs, and it has meant the world to me to have those costs looked after, allowing me to focus 100 per cent on my golf."

Future events this year will be taking place in the Czech Republic, Spain, Ireland, Finland, Italy, France, Portugal, Switzerland – and China.”

Dan Brown has already had a distinguished amateur career, representing his country at every level and winning the English Amateur Championship at Ganton in 2016.
