Golf: Cort's master-plan in bid for unprecedented treble
Leicestershire's leading professional Matthew Cort has launched his master-plan as he bids to rewrite golfing history.
The Rothley Park ace has the rare chance of winning a third consecutive National PGA Assistants Championship this year.
He already re-wrote the record books in 2012 by becoming the first golfer for more than 60 years to make a successful defence of the coveted title, which was first played in 1930 and pre-dates the Masters at Augusta.
If Cort can retain the title this year, it would set a record that may never be equalled or beaten.

But he knows he will face a tough task and, to prepare for that, has turned the spotlight on every aspect of his game.
He said: "I am working with a fitness specialist, who is producing a tailor-made plan for me, so I will know exactly what areas on which to work at the gym.
"Then I will bring everything together to achieve a total swing.
"By putting the focus on all aspects of my golf, it should help me to have complete confidence in my personal technique and be a great boost towards making any improvements which I feel may be necessary.
"Golf is so fiercely competitive these days, it is vital to assess all the information that may be available to be able to move forward, with knowledge and confidence, towards assessing and developing full potential, and to be capable of producing peak performances.
"This is the time of the year to be making those calls and putting in the hard work that may be needed to achieve personal targets."
Golfers can only compete in the National Assistants Championship while they are undertaking their PGA training.
A one-time European Tour regular, Cort is looking forward to completing his three-year training programme later this year, and has a busy tournament schedule, especially once this is completed.
"I am fully prepared to work hard and, once I have completed my PGA training, I will then be able to focus more on playing whenever and wherever I have tournament opportunities," he said.
"This will include PGA regional order of merit championships and other events, hopefully some at national level."
This year's National Assistants Championship will return to Coventry GC, Finham, which will almost certainly assure Cort of massive local support.
