Rounding off his season, Matthew was crowned Durham’s junior county champion of champions at Brancepeth Castle.
“The key to having such a good year was getting school out the way. Finishing my GCSEs then spending all my time on the golf course was great. I practised a lot, worked with John Harrison and got some great results from all that hard work.
“I’m looking forward to working with the England North squad over the winter and continuing with my course with the Golf Academy at Durham Sixth Form College. Next season I want to get down to scratch and make the cut consistently in the national events.”
