Simon, form Newbury, has been playing golf for seven years and started playing with his friends when he was just 17.

The 25 year old said: “I don’t sleep… just spend all the time thinking of new ideas and then ask family and friends for ideas. People who don’t play golf come up with the best ideas.

“I started playing golf with friends when I was 17 so probably coming up to eight years now.

“We started messing about doing the tricks before we were any good at golf. Just something I have always done when practising on and off the golf course. However nowadays I seem to practising it a lot!

“My favourite trick has to be my first one with the two concrete slabs as without that being so successful, I would never have started this journey of trick-shots.

“It is hard to be original as there are loads of people doing golf trick-shots now. The art of it now is doing a simple shot that no one has ever thought about before.”
