For a man lucky not to be killed falling 30 feet from a Corbridge dentist's roof on to his van - and who virtually turned his back on golf for 13 years - Ken Mewse is enjoying a hot streak.
The 48-year-old roofer from Hexham has won the Tynedale club championship for the fourth year in a row to qualify for The Journal Champion of Champions at De Vere Slaley Hall on September 6. Mewse learned his golf at Hexham and won their 1985 club championship. But by the time he hit his 30s, Mewse had tired of golf, and of the pain he was getting from his back. "I just got bored with it and fed up," he said. "I played a couple of times a year or so and that was it. I didn't miss it."
When he was 40, he had the work accident and says: "I blacked out as soon as I slipped off that roof in Corbridge and came round five hours later in hospital. That five hours of my life has remained a blank ever since, but the doctors told me I was lucky to have survived it."
