Romilly began his career in sports editorial at Sports Advisor magazine in 2002. He has since written as a sports journalist for papers as varied as The Daily Telegraph, The Sun and Aspinalls before going on to the spread-betting company, IG Index.
An avid follower of all sports but particularly golf, he is still waiting on an old friend graduating from the Euro Pro circuit to the main tour and qualifying for the majors. This would enable Romilly to fulfil a 15-year long promise and caddy for him at The Open. However, the ante-post markets are still to list his friend in the betting. The waiting is the hardest part.
