What a weekend for British sport that was, particularly for two young golfers who recorded huge wins - and not just in the financial sense.
Perhaps the most impressive performance came from Charley Hull who won the CME Group Tour Championship by two shots, her first LPGA title.
The 20-year-old finished on a tournament record 19 under par in Florida, to beat South Korea's Ryu So-yeon.
Summing it all up, she said: "It's wicked to do it at 20. It feels good to be joining the winners this year." Well said!
Then there was Matthew Fitzpatrick, who holed a nerve-jangling putt on the final hole to win the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai by a single shot.
"It means the world," said Fitzpatrick. "To win one of these Final Series events is really special, and this one in particular - obviously the last tournament of the year. For me to win on the final week of the year is special.
"Four footers aren't normally what you want for the win but to finish it off like that makes it a lot sweeter."
It's great to see two young role models fulfilling their potential, so a big well done to both of them.
