CHESHIRE-based Nathan Grant claimed the Lee Westwood Golf School title of International strokeplay champion over three intense days of competition at the Iberostar Novo Sancti Petri resort in Cadiz, Spain.
The competition saw all 80 students from Westwood’s Cheshire and Essex schools and The Darren Clarke Golf School in Ireland battle it out to take the International title.
PGA associate coach and six times Open Championship player Sandy Wilson said: “Nathan deserved to win, he has worked hard during the winter months to help improve his game both physically and mentally.”
Holly Calvert, programme manager at The Lee Westwood Golf School in Cheshire, added: “Nathan played consistently throughout the two weeks in Spain. He has made his mark, and turned his focus to more the enjoyment of the game instead of focusing too much on the technical side.”
The first two days saw the 18-year-old four-handicapper, who hails from Redditch, produce rounds of 72 and 73 and then culminated in a tremendous 71 on the final day to finish one-under-par and level for the whole tournament, taking the overall title.
“Nathan was also instrumental in our Ryder Cup victories in the first week, having taken on two opponents simultaneously and beating them both,” added Holly.
