Schmidt puts gloss on fantastic season

YORKSHIRE’S BEN SCHMIDT put the seal on a remarkable season

YORKSHIRE’S BEN SCHMIDT put the seal on a remarkable season with a three-shot victory in the English Boys’ County Champion of Champions tournament at Woodhall Spa. The 16-year-old from Rotherham Golf Club played the 36-hole event in four-under-par to win by three from nearest rival Greg Holmes of Royal Birkdale.

Schmidt started his season with victory in the Yorkshire Boys’ Championship and followed up with second place in the English U16 Boys’ Open and a win in the men’s scratch tournament for the Lee Westwood Trophy. “I was looking to win,” he said afterwards. “I’d had good form all year and this was my last individual event, so I wanted to get it under my belt.”
