England bank on Barclay

Yorkshire’s Barclay Brown played his part in England’s victory in the European Young Masters in Norway.

The teenager teamed up with Lily May Humphreys, Annabell Fuller and Conor Gough at Oslo Golf Club to win the title.

Brown shot a final round of four under-par (68) as England underlined its current dominance in Europe – following Alfie Plant’s win at the European Amateur Championship and and a team win at the European women’s event.

This is England’s first team victory since 2013 as they finished on 12 under-par, beating Norway by five shots, while Italy took third place two shots further back. Meanwhile, Brown also swept all before him and picked up a brand new electric trolley at the Independent Schools Golf Association HG Trophy at Burhill Golf Club.

The talented 16-year-old – who plays off a handicap of plus-two – posted a four under-par round of 68 to win the tournament by five shots, while playing his part as the team prize going to Sheffield’s Birkdale School for the first time.

Having won the ISGA Northern Open by seven shots earlier this year, Barclay said: “It was an all-round brilliant day – the first ISGA seniors win for Birkdale and a great round to get another individual win for myself.”
