Exclusive: Osborne 'getting some reward'
By Editorial Staff 01/04/2021
" I've worked incredibly hard for a long time and perhaps, I am beginning to get some reward for all the time I have put in."
The Wizard, as Colin is known, has improved each day since entering at the start of this week. Two wins on Monday and Tuesday were improved to three yesterday before today's bumper haul of four out of five attempts.
" Funny thing is, there is a lot more to come. I have practising at close to the level I know I can, sooner or later it's going to come through, out there"
Andy Jenkins had stepped in for Les Wallace and almost walked away with the group. His defeat to the former Championship League winner and UK Open finalist means that he went down to second place on leg difference and head to head.
"Jenks and I have a long-standing, but friendly, rivalry, the way he was playing earlier looked like it was his day, but I nicked the first leg. After that it was a bit scrappy. But, I remembered that you only have to be better than the other guy, that day"
" I played better on at least two other days and didn't get the reward. But I feel I am getting better with every session"
Colin will return tomorrow and attempt to reach the final group which takes place on Saturday.
