With his regular caddie absent, Issi Byron was ‘on the bag’ for the first time on the DP World Tour event, won by Sam Horsfield by two strokes, his third tour title.

19-year-old Issi is currently studying a BA (Hons) in Golf Management, having previously completed a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Golf Studies with Myerscough.

Sam said after his victory: ‘’Having Issi on the bag, it's been an amazing week,"

"Issi has been amazing. I've been so happy on the golf course. "I asked her coming down 18, ‘Are you nervous' and she said, ‘Yeah’. But we've had an amazing week and I'm just so happy that she was here to enjoy this.’’

What an experience!
