GAA: In league of his own.

Hendry could not have been happier as he returned home yesterday to wife Mandy and young son Blaine at their Auchterarder home following his amazing 9-5 victory over Peter Ebdon in the British Open final.

Yet it was just over a year ago that the vultures were circling above him after he was whitewashed 9-0 by Marcus Campbell in a UK Championship shocker.
