Horsham’s young golfing sensation Marco Penge continued his brilliant season by becoming the English Boys under 16 and under 15 champion.

In scorching conditions at Seacroft Golf Club, Lincolnshire on Thursday, Marco kept his cool with final day rounds of 67 and 73 to finish one under par for the championship, three strokes better than his England colleague Bradley Moore and home player Billy Spooner.

Taking both titles means Marco has collected four titles this year, including the illustrious Fairhaven Trophy recently, but this under 16 McGregor Trophy is the most prestigious as it means he is a national champion and joins an illustrious roll of honour that includes the likes of Justin Rose and several other who have gone on to be tour professionals.
