Newton Green Golf Club’s Jed Seeley continued to enjoy a purple patch after lifting the Junior Open Championship on his home course.

The 17-year-old saw off Suffolk’s top young players with a level par round of 69 on his home course.

Recently, former Sudbury Upper School pupil Seeley, who now works in the club shop and next year plans to join the PGA training ranks, set a new course record of 63 at Newton.

He was also a member of the club’s Hambro Cup 
winning team, and could 
be pushing for a full Suffolk team place next year after 
recently breaking through 
into the second team ranks.

His level-par round in the Junior Open scratch division left him two shots clear of Josh Robertson (Ufford Park) and three ahead of Gregor Tait (Ipswich) and Jack Cuthbert (Thorpeness).

Another fast-improving Newton player Ben Uttridge playing off six, came fourth and lifted the Division One Handicap prize.

Uttridge notched a trio of firsts by also being part of the Aldous Team Cup-winning side of James Cooper and Kieran Sorrell

In the section for net Stableford scores, Newton’s Alex Iveson scored 40 points to take first prize and first in the Division Two Handicap division.
