England’s Jake Burnage has just doubled up with his second win in the Scrutton Jug, which is awarded for the best combined total in the Brabazon and Berkshire Trophies.

Burnage, from Saunton in Devon, was joint runner-up in the Brabazon, where he was nine-under for 72 holes on the Hotchkin course at Woodhall Spa. He followed up with a share of sixth pace in the Berkshire Trophy when he was eight under.

The 22-year-old previously won the Scrutton Jug in 2015. His latest win underlines a successful season which has also included third place in the Lytham Trophy and a win in the Hampshire Hog on his way to second place in the Hampshire Salver. He is a member of the England men’s A squad.

The Brabazon Trophy was won by South Africa’s Kyle McClatchie on ten-under. Adam Lumley (Coventry) was the runaway winner of the Berkshire Trophy, finishing on 18-under for 72 holes and seven shots clear of the field.
