A delighted Daniel said:“I’ve been lucky to play golf at some top venues with the BJGT including Sunningdale, Woburn, Woodhall Spa, The Belfry and the 2010 course at Celtic Manor. This is the icing on the cake and I am very grateful to tour director, Steve Adams, who will be caddying for me at the London Golf Club next week.”
