Super Symons is the pride of Cams

Cams Hall have a national champion in their ranks – and he's just 13.

Hamish Symons, a year eight pupil at Cams Hill School, is the 2010 Crown Golf 'Champion of Champions' after a fine performance at Broke Hill Golf Club in Kent.

Symons qualified for the tournament after winning the net junior event at Cams Hall Estate Golf Club this summer by eight shots.

It saw the 30-handicapper – it's now set to tumble! – line up against champions from 28 other UK clubs.

It was a tough assignment and with weather conditions not ideal, the pressure was on.

But Symons, one of the youngest competitors on show, drew on his countless lessons with Sam Pleshette, the head professional at Cams, to stay calm and play the round of his fledgling career to date.

His net 66 round proved too good for his rivals and, watched by dad Jerry and other family members, he claimed the title.

The trophy haul wasn't over for Symons, with the youngster walking off with the nearest-the-pin prize, too, on the 133-yard fourth.

Ben Beagley, general manager at Cams Hall, said: 'He joined about a year ago and I think he was fairly new to the game. In the past year, he has really come on.

'The junior section is something we are trying really hard to get moving.

'We are the verge of being given GolfMark status, basically junior golf accreditation.

'So it's good to see that all the hard work over the past year is starting to pay off – especially on behalf of the work done with the pro and with junior organiser Steve Noon, who has put in a lot of hard work.

'I've seen Hamish play at Cams and he's been impressive.

'His win is great for the club and it's something for him to build on.

'In order to get back to defend his title he has to win again at Cams – so he's got plenty to play for.'

Beagley added: 'We are incredibly proud of Hamish.

'It's always great for a club to produce a national champion and he's an inspiration not only to our junior members but also to our grown-up golfers, too!

'He's a growing talent and under Sam's tutelage I think he will develop into a very good golfer over the years to come.'
