Amor crowned champion at Hills Wiltshire Professionals’ Golf Championship

Jamie AmorJamie Amor picked up the winner’s trophy and cheque at the 39th Hills Wiltshire Professionals’ Golf Championship which was held at Marlborough Golf Club last Thursday (July 4).

The 21-year-old won by four shots with an impressive score of 5 under par for the 36 hole competition.

Although the course was basked in glorious sunshine throughout the day, the high temperatures made for very challenging playing conditions for the 19 Wiltshire professionals who took part in the event.

This made Jamie’s rounds of six under par for the morning and one over par for the afternoon seem even more remarkable.

The competition for the runner up prize was fairly intense with only two shots separating the next five players. Second spot was eventually taken by Dan Carter from Upavon Golf Club with a score of one under par for the day.

It was an emotional first time win in the competition for Jamie and his family for not only did he win at his home club but father and long-serving Marlborough professional Simon and his brother Ben were also competing, with Ben finishing joint third on level par.
