Men's 1st Team stalwart and 2015 Men's County Champion Laurie Owen of Letchworth, finished in a hugely impressive tie for 2nd place at last weeks Men's Portuguese International Amateur Championship, played at the Montado Golf Resort.
Laurie shot rounds of 68, 70, 69 and 71 for a 4 round total of 278 (-10), to finish in a tie for 2nd with Frenchman Lucas Abrial, both 3 shots behind the winner and home favourite Daniel de Costa Rodrigues on 275 (-13).
Laurie was the top performing British golfer in the field including several Walker Cup hopefuls, so has done his chances of a future potential England call up no harm at all!
26 year old Laurie has been a strong supporter of County golf for a long time, coming through the ranks of the Boys teams, into the Colts and now as a mainstay of the Men's team.
Laurie has even had a write up on the England Golf website for his efforts - click here. This page includes a link to view the full scores from the event.
We would like to congratulate Laurie for his excellent performance and hope it is just the start of a very fruitful 2019 season for the young man.
