Teenage golf star Callum Brookes has qualified for the national final of the Lee Westwood Golf Tour.
The 15-year-old, a junior squad member of the Saffron Walden Golf Club and U16’s Cambridgeshire county player, faced tough opposition in tournaments over the course of the year, winning the Order of Merit for the east anglia region.
The tour was set up by golf ace Lee Westwood, to promote a junior golf tour where players were able to compete on different courses, and against top players from around the region
Three impressive wins, two runners-up and a third place secured Brookes’s number one position in the order of merit on 69 points, with his nearest rival back on 48 points, despite only being able to play in six of the seven events.
He now travels to Gainsborough in Lincolnshire to play in the national final on Saturday against other winners from the 12 tour regions of the UK, and some of the best junior players in the UK.
