Q and A with Tom workman

 Tom Workman of Stinchcombe Hill made his County 1st Team debut in August 2010 against Somerset at Filton Golf Club.

Since then, he has played in over 30 matches including three consecutive appearances at South West Week.

Towards the end of the 2011 season, Tom started playing foursomes with Nick Day (Henbury), and their record since then has been quite incredible - playing in 18 matches together, they have won 13, halved 2 and lost just 3.

In stroke play, Tom has won four Duchess Salver events, the most notable being his first when he took the County Men's County Championship at his home club in 2011.
