Daniel Norman wins Northern Masters at Rockliffe Hall

Teesside Golf Club’s Daniel Norman lifted the Northern Golf Masters trophy at Rockliffe Hall, leading the field with a level-par round of 72 on a tough day for scoring with blustery winds and the tees pushed back.

Daniel, 20, completed his round with a key birdie on the 17th hole en-route to a one under-par back nine and a two-shot win over Heworth’s Will Marshall. James Gerencser, from South Shields, completed the top three with his round of 76.

Daniel said: “I was playing well coming into the tournament, but the front nine was a struggle and I missed a couple of chances on the greens. I knew the scores were close, but the back nine was superb and my game came into its own.”
