On his third consecutive final, Hugh plays his golf at Mount Juliet GC in Ireland. He is our youngest ever captain, and certainly one of the most consistent performers.

He's been a big character at previous finals winning the individual event in Season 2, and competing as part of Team Europe in California in Season 5 and at Mannings Heath GC in Season 6.
