Top three finish for St. Mary's pupil in Euro golf event
A student from St. Mary’s College in Crosby has just returned from Spain after achieving a top three place in the finals of a major golf tournament.
16-year-old James Rooney, a member of West Lancs Golf Club, finished in third place in the Andalucia Junior European Open which featured a line-up of over thirty of the UK’s top young golfers.
The St. Mary’s sixth former had previously booked his place in the finals of the event with an excellent performance in the northern regional play-off in Wakefield.
The Andalucia Junior European Open - which is was held for the seventh time this year - is widely believed to be the toughest test in junior golf in the UK.
The strokeplay event - organised in association with the Daily Express - was staged over five rounds at courses including Finca Cortesin, venue for the Volvo World Matchplay tournament in May this year.
St. Mary’s College Principal, Mike Kennedy, commented: “James has proved himself to be an outstanding golfing talent, so it’s no surprise to us that he is now competing and achieving excellent results at such a high level.”
