Lamb chops down field in Junior Masters

FIFTEEN-year-old Matty Lamb claimed glory in this year’s Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters title to continue his stunning season.

Matty recorded a winning score of six-under-par in full tournament conditions over four rounds at the Nizels course in Kent. He was two shots better off than the runner-up Adam Chapman of Windermere, with three players - Boston’s Jordan Wrisdale, Jack Singh-Brar of Brokenhurst Manor and Wallasey’s Massey - finishing a further three shots adrift in a share of third.

The Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters is one of the most prestigious golf championships for players under 18 years of age and it attracts an international field of entrants from all across Europe. It is designated by the R&A as a ‘major’ making it a qualifying event for the GB&I boys’ team and a world ranking event for amateurs. It is also a founder tournament of the England Golf Titleist/FootJoy Boys’ Order of Merit, with its roll call of past champions including European Tour winners Joost Luiten and Chris Wood. 

As well as this title, Matty, representing Hexham, has already become the youngest player ever to win the Northumberland County Strokeplay Championship. He has also added the Northumberland and Durham Inter-County Foursomes, alongside Martin Coup, and the Northumberland Team Championship, with Coup and Sean Heads.
