Ian Ellis is hooked. Having experienced all four days of the BMW PGA Championship at the seventh attempt, the PGA pro from Great Yarmouth and Caister Golf Club was in seventh heaven despite ending the tournament on nine-over-par.

Never mind collecting a cheque for more than £5,000 for his efforts, the bottom line for the 42-year-old is that the Wentworth experience has whetted his appetite for more portions of the big time.

“It’s always disappointing to shoot over par but I’ve enjoyed the experience,” he said after negotiating the West Course for the fourth and final time in three-over.

“My goal was to come here and try and finish top 20 and make the cut. I made the cut and am really over the moon about that.

“I’m obviously disappointed I’ve shot some over par rounds but it’s something I’ve done now. I’ve ticked that box. If I ever get to play in it again, I know what to expect. It’s not such a big deal – you’ve just got to go out there and play golf.

“I loved every single moment of it and would love to get a Tour card – you’re never too old. I’ve played with a few good players this year and there’s not a lot of difference other than consistency.”
