England regional squad player Oliver Dickman swept to a six-shot victory in the U15 Douglas Johns Trophy at Harewood Downs Golf Club in Buckinghamshire.
Dickman, from Cuckfield Golf Centre, Sussex, was five-under overall, opening with three-under 66, which was the best gross score of the day. In the afternoon, played in light drizzle and one spell of torrential rain, he added two-under 67.
The 15-year-old is a member of the England Golf U16 boys’ South East squad,
John Richardson of Royal Mid-Surrey took second place with a one-over par total (70, 69), beating Matthew Jackman (Southport & Ainsdale Lancashire) on countback (67, 72). Richardson and Jackman are also members of regional U16 squads.
This leading U15 event attracted 60 players from all over the country and from as far afield as Singapore and Dubai. They competed for a trophy which was once won by major champion and Olympic gold medallist Justin Rose.
BB&O Golf Union Secretary John Kennedy praised the “wonderful” Harewood Downs course and said: “We hope to see 60 more of the best U15s next year.”
