The new English women’s amateur champion, Lily May Humphreys, will represent England in this week’s European Young Masters alongside three other leading teenagers: Barclay Brown, Annabell Fuller and Conor Gough.
The U16 championship will be played at Oslo Golf Club, Norway, from 27-29 July. There are individual competitions for boys and girls and a Nations Cup team event. Humphreys was third in the girls’ championship last year.
Barclay Brown, 16, (Hallamshire, Yorkshire) was eighth in the Peter McEvoy Trophy, 11th in the Fairhaven Trophies and 15th in the Scottish U16s. In 2016 his results included winning the U18 trophy at the North of England Youths’ championship.
Annabell Fuller, 15, (Roehampton, Surrey) tied for the Annika Invitational Europe only to lose to a birdie on the third play-off hole. She was third in both the German girls’ open and, individually, in the women’s European Nations Cup. She also reached the quarter finals of the French U18 Cartier Trophy.
