A STUNNING performance from Sam Trott saw him win this yearâ€™s Junior Open at Weymouth Golf Club in style.
A 12-under-par round of 58 (nett) saw the 10-year-old take the title by three shots from Billy Hathway and George Hawkins.
Trottâ€™s triumph also led to a four-stroke handicap cut, meaning the youngster will now be playing off 16 rather than 20.
The champion led home a field of 78 and made it a weekend to remember for the Trott household after dad Andy won the Secretaryâ€™s Putter the day before with a gross score of 82, nett 65.
â€œSam is one of a group of youngsters who are going to shine in the next couple of years,â€ said Weymouth club pro Des Lochrie.
â€œItâ€™s hard to say how far he can go because he is still young but that is a great score.
â€œIt was a great event and the scoring was exceptional really â€“ I can only dream of making those scores.â€
Hathway just had the edge on Hawkins for second place, taking the runner-up spot on countback.
Result: 1 Trott (78/20/58), 2 c/b Hathway (77/16/61), 3 Hawkins (77/16/61)
