A London golfer who until now was mainly known for being one of the few left-handed players on tour, has been given the chance of a lifetime. Chris Gane has qualified for the PGA championship at Wentworth where he'll be playing alongside the likes of Rory McIlroy.

30 chilly golfers in Southend have set a world record in the category ‘Most Naked People to play a Miniature Golf Course in One Hour’. They also raised over £3,000 for the Prostate Cancer Charity when they took to the course on the seafront.
Justin Rose clinched the biggest win of his career in Sunday's WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami and now has his sights set on a successful year.
The Londoner shot a two-under-par 70 to beat American Bubba Watson by a stroke and hold off a late surge from world number one Rory McIlroy to claim his first victory in the elite WGC series.
It was Rose's fourth win on the PGA Tour, following victories in the Memorial Tournament and the AT&T National in 2010 and last year's BMW Championship, and crowned an impressive start to the year for the 31-year-old.
"It had me sweating" said Rose, who had to prepare himself mentally for a play-off until Watson missed his birdie attempt.
The victory was worth over £875,000 and puts the Londoner on course for a Ryder Cup return after being left out by Colin Montgomerie in 2010.
