- 27.07.12: Kelly's the hero after marathon playoff with Keeble - Just a year ago Patrick Kelly suffered the agony of losing the British Boys Championship at an extra hole. In the Kent sunshine he landed a national title when he won the Carris Trophy, supported by Titleist, after a marathon playoff with Bobby Keeble.
- 26.07.12: Kelly stays ahead but Keeble closes in with 67 - Patrick Kelly wasn't sure if he was a good front-runner, having never previously led a major competition. But he received the perfect answer with a 69 to lead by two with a round left of the English Boys under 18 Championship, supported by Titleist.
- 25.07.12: Top man Kelly shoots 68 for three-stroke lead - Patrick Kelly will enter the unknown in tomorrow's third round of the English Boys under 18 Championship for the Carris Trophy, supported by Titleist, after he hit the top of the leaderboard at the halfway stage at Royal Cinque Ports in Kent.
- 24.07.12: Six-birdie Keeble leads in the Kentish heat - Bobby Keeble from Essex stole a march on the more fancied performers as he led the Carris Trophy, supported by Titleist, on a hot opening day at Royal Cinque Ports at Deal in Kent.
The West Lancashire Golf Club was founded in 1873 and is among the ten oldest golf clubs in England. It boasts one of the most natural and testing links in the British Isles, of which Donald Steel wrote "Only in Britain can one savour the true flavour of seaside golf, of which West Lancashire is a perfect example."
Imaginative and varied in layout, the course has so much more to offer than simply a wonderful experience of classic links with stunning views of the Mersey Estuary, and the Welsh Mountains.
