Michael Reynard staged a remarkable comeback to set up a meeting with Scotland's Gordon Sherry in today's 36-hole final of the 100th Amateur Championship at Hoylake.

Three down with four to play against the Irish international Jody Fanagan, the 33-year-old from Moseley won them all and is now one victory away from not only the title, but also a place in next month's Open, next April's US Masters and almost certainly September's Walker Cup as well.

The final hurdle is a giant one for the former professional, though. Sherry, 6ft 8in tall and weighing 18 stone, was the runner-up 12 months ago.
