Milton clubmate Robin ‘Tiger’ Williams takes part in the prestigious English Men’s Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship for the Brabazon Trophy starting today (Thursday) at Alwoodly Golf Club in Leeds.

The Brabazon Trophy is one of England Golf’s major championships and is arguably the world’s top strokeplay event for amateur men.

Burghley Park youngster Teddy Crooke claimed an unprecedented clean sweep at the Lincolnshire County Junior Championship at Cleethorpes on Sunday.

He landed the Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 titles after firing two four over par rounds of 74 in wet and windy conditions.

After the first round he was lying in fourth position overall (1st Under 14, 2nd Under 16).

The rain stopped in the afternoon but the wind picked up even more and the first round leaders struggled.

Crooke coped better than most and won the overall championship by three clear shots.

The tournament first took place in 1937 and notable past winners include Mark James of Burghley Park and Tony Jacklin.
