The 43-year-old played provincial football as a schoolboy and received national colours or baseball, but his true passion was golf. With six Sunshine Tour wins to his name and a solid record on the Big Easy Tour, Liddle is certainly a threat in the field at Ebotse Golf Estate.
The Boksburg local began the 2013 season on a high note, carding rounds of 69 and 68 for a share of fourth at Big Easy Roodepoort.
A lull over May and June did not discourage the journeyman, who picked up a share of 27th at Big Easy Benoni in July. That same month he took home a share of 28th at Big Easy Royal Johannesburg & Kensington.
In August the results continued to flow for Liddle, who tied for 11th at Big Easy Copperleaf and capped off the season with a share of 13th at Big Easy ERPM.
With experience on his side and a run of good results from his last four starts, Liddle will head to Tour Champs brimming with confidence.
