England’s Adams wins Reid Trophy in play-off
England’s Hugh Adams held his nerve to win the Reid Trophy on the fourth hole of a sudden death play-off at Reading Golf Club. The 13-year-old from Hagley Golf Club in Worcestershire defeated Spain’s Angel Ayora with a par and said: “It just felt great. I was just excited to lift up the trophy.
“I didn’t come here expecting to win, I’m only 13 and I’ve still got another year so I was just trying to play well.”
However, when he got within four shots of the lead after two rounds he was determined to go for it – and secured his place in the play-off with his three-under 67. Adams actually had a 10-footer on the 18th to win outright, but it slid past the hole and he was into the play-off.
He’d been involved in sudden death once before and although he lost that time – on the eighth hole - the experience helped him.
“I was quite relaxed, quite calm, but definitely determined,” he said.
Adams, who plays for his county, has been in good form this season, with high finishes at both the Midlands U16 championship and the Douglas Johns Trophy. “It’s been going well,” he said.
The goal of our Junior section is to be a welcoming environment for young people new to the game and their families. As a Golf Roots Centre we work closely with Engalnd Golf and other local partners to continually improve opportunities for junior golf in the local area. We also welcome children with disabilities or SEN through our 'Golf for Disabled Children' coaching program.
We have Worcestershire County golfers both girls and boys, County Captains and England National players.
Our section is very proud of their achievements and their conduct.
