CHORLEY'S Nick Dougherty revealed he is going to take a nine-week break after completing his final tournament of 2007.

The 25-year-old Shaw Hill professional ended a superb year - in which he landed the Alfred Dunhill Championship - with a joint 12th place finish at the HSBC Champions Trophy in Shanghai.

Dougherty said: "It's going to be a little bit different for me compared to normal.

"I'm going to spend three weeks with my fitness guy, three weeks with my coach, Damien Taylor, and a three-week holiday as well so it will be a nice break."
