Posted by: Darren Ramowski on Tue 15 May 2012
Louis Tomlinson triumphed in the fourth Faldo Series UK Championship of the 2012 season at West Lancashire Golf Club in Liverpool. 18-year-old Tomlinson fired rounds of 71 and 74 on his home course to win by one shot and secure a spot in the Grand Final.
“Course knowledge was really important, especially on the second day when the wind got up,” said Tomlinson, a former junior member of Sir Nick Faldo’s home club at Welwyn Garden City. “I’m delighted to get my first win of the season and can’t wait for the Grand Final at Lough Erne.”
12-year-old Holly Muse (Girls’ Under-16), another member of West Lancashire, also made the most of local knowledge to seal her place in the 16th Faldo Series Grand Final, to be hosted by six-time Major Champion Faldo at Lough Erne Resort in Northern Ireland.
Three other age-group winners heading to the World Amateur Golf Ranking event at Lough Erne this September are Kieran Waters from Carlisle (Boys’ Under-21), Daniel Croft of Huyton and Prescot (Boys’ Under-16) and Poppy Finlay from Vicars Cross (Girls’ Under-21).
