Australian Jack Besley won the Men's 2014 World Deaf Golf Championship in great style - winning by a comfortable margin - 4 under par 68 in the 4th round.

Jack's winning 4 round total score of 295 was seven strokes ahead of Denmark's Hans Elgard who finished on 302. In 3rd place is England's Michael Burris on 306.

Deaf Golf Australia:This is your 3rd WDGC campaign, can you tell us in your own words how do you compare this WDGC with the previous two?

Jack Besley:This is by far the toughest WDGC Championship I have played and there is no comparison with the previous two (2012 and 2010). 

DGA: Which team do you think is the "danger team"?

Jack Besley: The Americans are the team to watch out for because they are coming 1st. We'll need to play our best in the remaining two rounds to have any chance of beating them! 
DGA: Which is the toughest hole?

Jack Besley:No doubt the par 4 5th hole! It is just so tough. There are many other tough holes in the course but nowhere near the 5th!
