Cameron Adam storms to Faldo Series victory
Young Scot claims England North Boys Championship
Elsewhere, Jamie Van Wyk shot 5-under par to claim the U21s category following a confident display that left him the sole under par score in the category. Whilst fellow English golfer, Sam Easterbrook proved a tough competitor as he recovered from a misfiring opening round, with a 68 on his second time of asking to take home the U16s category by two shots finishing his efforts level par.
After the event had concluded, Faldo Series Director, Matthew Faldo, said: “It is always great to return to the North and with the wild conditions it proved quite a test for players out on the exposed links. Despite the bad weather, the course looked in exceptional condition and its ability to recover really is a testament to all the team here at St Annes Old Links.
“Congratulations to Cameron who has proved to be a real force over the years in the Series, and we look forward to seeing him back in action at our Grand Final. Also, to both Jamie and Sam, who fought well to post some very respectable scores over the two days, and we are excited to see them at the Grand Final too.”
The Faldo Series team and St Annes Old Links Golf Club staff went above and beyond to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all players and staff at the event remained uncompromised, with sanitisation stations, social distancing and reduced touchpoints implemented and signed throughout the event. Players continued to use the Faldo Series app to complete all scoring.
The Series takes a short break and will return on the 12th October at Ladybank Golf Club to host the rescheduled Scotland Girls and Boys Championship, concluding what has been a thrilling season of qualifiers for the Europe schedule since returning after lockdown.
