HARRY Ellis heads back to college in Florida knowing his game is now in the best possible shape – four years after he was lauded as Hampshire’s next Justin Rose following his win in the English Amateur Championship at the age of just 16.
Last year he was crowned AMC Conference Player of the Year and nominated for a Jack Nicklaus Award, before flying home for summer to claim one of the most prestigious 72-hole strokeplay titles in English Amateur golf – The Berkshire Trophy.

Having the competitor’s badge that enables players access to almost any where at Royal Troon will probably provide the biggest boost to Scott Gregory’s dream of becoming a European Tour player – regardless of how he performs at The Open this week.
