Southgate "Touching People's Lives" With Cancer Breakthrough

Nice read from The Telegraph's James Corrigan on Matthew Southgate, who is a cancer survivor that cashed a much needed big check (over £150,000) last week in the Irish Open.

The Q-School grad (after multiple tries) is teeing up in this week's BMW PGA at Wentworth.

“The reaction has overwhelmed me,” Southgate said. “Complete strang ers have been so kind, getting in touch. But the messages which mean the most have been from a few people who’ve said, ‘I’m dealing with cancer and you’ve given me hope’. It is some feeling when your head hits the pillow and you think ‘I’ve actually touched people’s lives, people I’ve never met’. That’s what it’s all about. It’s not about a ball going in the hole."
