INDUSTRYNEWS Champion Tony takes the double! Swish-sponsored Tony Lloyd (AKA @shortarmgolfer) took the double by winning both the European and French Opens. Previously, Tony’s best placing had been 5th in any European Disabled Golf Association tour and he wasn’t expecting to win category 2 in the AA St. Omer, Open de France an EDGA PREMIER Series tournament – but he did by an amazing 12 shots - quickly followed by his winning the European title just two weeks later. “I knew I’d played well at the French Open,” said double Champion Tony who is sponsored by Swish Window and Doors Systems. “But I didn’t realise that I’d won until after the final hole. “It was a tough course. Last time I played it spanked me so to go back and get some redemption was brilliant!On the final day my opponent was my friend, Miroslav Lidinsky. He ended up second and it felt good standing on the podium with him.” Jon Skinner, joint MD of Swish Window and Door Systems, added: “This is a brilliant achievement. The whole team follow his progress and this is a superb result.” Twitter @shortarmgolfer Additional greenteQ Hinge Colours Hardware specialist VBH has introduced seven new colour variants of the greenteQ Sigma Hybrid door hi nge, bringing the total number of finishes available to 15.
