Winners Joshua McCartain and Joshua Strudwick with Littlehampton GC pro Stuart Fallow

BOGNOR youngsters Joshua Strudwick and Joshua McCartain were winners at the Littlehampton GC Junior Championship for the second year running.

Strudwick, 16, won the club’s junior scratch championship playing off a handicap of three to repeat his win of last year.

McCartain, nine, from Middleton, also for the second year in a row, won the Watts Cup on handicap.

Golfing talent runs in the family. Thirty years ago his father Brendan, who was then a junior at the club, also won the trophy.

Brendan is now one of the most experienced caddies on the European Tour.

He carried the bag for Jose-Marie Olazabel when he won the US Masters at Augusta in 1999 and is now caddying for Britian’s Chris Wood.
