Leyland Golf Club junior Nat Draper has won the Lancashire Schoolboys’ Golf Championship at Whitefield Golf Club, near Bury.

Nat, who studies at Standish High School, scored a net 64 to win the hotly-contested tournament by one shot.

The 12-year-old has only been playing golf for 18 months but is a regular competitor in the junior events at Leyland.

To commemorate Nat’s win, Leyland Golf Club presented him with a club jumper, which will be embroidered with details of his win.

Nat said: “I just went out to enjoy the round, but I was certainly very excited to win such a good competition.”
