‘It has saved us winning the $100,000. We are workers. We just get by,’ he told The Courier Mail. 

‘It’s been tough in life. This is going to set us up and make life easier down the track so we aren’t living week to week.’ 

Mark had his good luck charm – a signed Greg Norman hat – in his pocket, and breezed through his early rounds. 

Competition: He clashed with pro-golfer, Montana Strauss, and drone-pilot, Jayden Lawson, at Greg Norman's top-secret final hole, The Tomb of Nefer-Tee-Tee

With Montana and Jayden having both achieved a hole-in-one during their championship rounds, Mark stepped up to the Grand Final hole as the underdog. 

Each player had to putt through the sphinx onto the rotating pyramids and then onto the green with a 100-ft shot at a hole-in-one.

‘I cannot believe it!’ Mark told host Sonia Kruger at the conclusion of the game.

He revealed the prize money would be spent on his family, a new car and some golf clubs.
