GOLF: Amor leads England challenge in Ontario
9:42am Friday 6th September 2013 in Sport
ENGLISH boys champion Ben Amor has been selected in a team of four to represent England in the Canadian International Junior Challenge at Oslerbrook Golf and Country Club in Ontario next week.
Amor, from Marlborough, will be accompanied by Haydn McCullen (Delamere Forest, Cheshire), Billy Spooner (Boston, Lincolnshire) and Jonathan Thomson (Lindrick, Yorkshire).
England has won this team event for the past five years, while Yorkshire’s Nick Marsh won the individual medal in the event a year ago.
Amor won the English Boys title for the Carris Trophy last month at West Lancashire after a three-way sudden death play-off against Italy’s Renato Paratore and fellow West Countryman Jamie Li (Bath, Somerset).
The former Filton College student, 18, also made his England debut in the Boys Home Internationals at Forest Pines when he won all six of his games and he is currently third on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf Boys Order of Merit.
The Canadian International Junior Challenge, now in its seventh year, is one of the leading events conducted by the Canadian Junior Golf Association.
It is a team event played over 54 holes of strokeplay with the three best scores each day to count. There is also an individual prize.
