A BONDHAY golfer beat 119 other youngsters to pick up the prestigious Royal Birkdale Junior Open trophy on Friday.

Greg Denton, 15, was two over par around the famous links course at Southport, delighting his mum Lesley.

She told the Guardian: “We’re extremely proud of him, it was just what he needed.”

“Sometimes they plod along with good and bad rounds, so it’s nice for him to get a great result, it shows him that he can do it.”

“It was a great day for him.”

Heritage High School student Denton picked up a £200 golf voucher, a silver medal and the trophy, which will remain at Royal Birkdale.
