Sussex golfer Amber Cockram has capped an outstanding season by winning the Junior Open at Golf At Goodwood on 28th October against a formidable line-up of competitors from all over southern England.
Amber, who took up the sport only three years ago, has made breathtaking progress and reached the final of the Sussex Ladies Championship earlier in the year and has now added the Bobby Locke Junior Open title to her impressive list of achievements.
She scored a gross 76 over the spectacular Downs Course and paid tribute to the encouragement she has received from the professional coaching staff at Goodwood for which she is also a Junior Ambassador.
The added bonus for the three main prize winners including Charlie Parsons and England regional squad member Charlie Strickland was the chance to drive a competitive Mini saloon around the famous Goodwood racetrack under expert supervision.
The 18 hole medal event attracted players with handicaps ranging from 1 to 28 and Teaching Professional Ryan Fenwick commented: “I’m delighted with the standard and enthusiasm of all the competitors and we are encouraged by the progress of the youngsters in our junior section”.
The Bobby Locke Junior Open is named after the late South African golfer who won the Open Championship four times and was a frequent golfing visitor to Goodwood.
