Following Jake Bolton’s great result in the Dutch Junior Open last month where he finished in sixth place, he took part in the English Men’s Amateur Championship which started on Tuesday 30th July.
The competition is played in two stages. Stage one is stroke play, where the full field plays 18 holes on both of the first two days. Stage two is matchplay involving the top 64 players.
Jake won the stroke play event with rounds of 68 and 67 to finish six under par. This in a field of more than 280 golfers. A fantastic result. In the matchplay stage, Jake won his first match to get through to the last 32 but unfortunately lost 2&1 in the next round.
Congratulations Jake on a brilliant performance.
