Luke Hynes has won the 15th Aldwickbury Park Golf Club Junior Open Championship.

Played over the Park Course, designed by former Ryder Cup star and BBC commentator Ken Brown, the Hertfordshire 15-year-old scored a level-par 71 to take the spoils.

Aldwickbury Park welcomed more than 40 youngsters, from across the region and neighbouring counties to compete in the annual event.

Sophie Faulkner, who topped the girls’ leaderboard in 2012, found her form once more at the Harpenden-based golf club to take top spot.

General manager Andrew Shewbridge said: “The Junior Open Championship is always a keenly contested event in our calendar and we look forward to welcoming the region’s top youngsters to our facilities.

“On behalf of everyone at Aldwickbury Park I’d like to congratulate Luke on his outstanding performance and Sophie for successfully defending her title.”

Aldwickbury Park also recently welcomed the county’s finest golfers for the 2013 Herts Salver event.

Jeremy Bohn of Hartsbourne, won the tournament with a two under par score of 69, getting to the turn from the tenth tee in an impressive 32 shots.

More than 60 golfers took part in the championship. Hynes followed closely finishing his round with three impressive birdies and a final score of 70. Scoring just one more shot, Paul McAvoy finished in third place.

Shewbridge said: “Not only have we had great weather but we’ve seen some great golf with 28 players in the field of more than 60 golfers returning a score of 75 or better.

“We wish all of the qualifiers the very best of luck in the upcoming County Championship.”

Eric Wyllie, captain of the Society of Hertfordshire Golf Captains, sponsors of the Herts Salver event, presented the winners with their prizes.
