It proved a long journey well made for Alexandra Rock as the youngster won the July Junior Tournament at Stonham Barns Golf Centre.

The 11-year-old, who plays her golf in Prague and has an 18 handicap, travelled over 1,000 miles from the Czech Republic to compete in the competition.

And it proved a worthy journey as her impressive score of 36 was enough for overall victory ahead of Stowmarket Golf Club’s 11-year-old Rio Everitt, who finished with a score of 38.

The under-10 age category was won by Sawyer Osbourn, a 10 year-old from Lakenheath Golf Club with the best score of the day, a 33 (four over par), while the under-eight age category was won by six year-old Finlay Brock with an excellent score of 41.
