HOT Worcester prospect Hayden Sarfo picked up the US Kids Golf British Championship's Under Nines Trophy.

Over two days on the tricky Bracken course at Lincolnshire's Woodhall Spa, Sarfo, who plays at Worcester Golf and Country Club, shot a total of 139 for five-under-par.

The city prospect beat players from all over the world including Switzerland, France, Mexico and Italy as well as the best the United Kingdom could offer.

He had a four-hole birdie streak in his first round of five-under to lead the field after day one.

Sarfo then had a steady par round on day two to finish five shots ahead of Bristol’s Jaxson Perry and Edinburgh’s Fraser Walters who tied as runners-up.

Fourth spot went to Max Mieschke from Zurich, Switzerland, on 146.

Meanwhile, Worcestershire's Hugh Adams was bidding to retain the English Under 14 Boys’ Open Amateur Stroke Play for the Reid Trophy.

There was a strong field of English and international players at Trentham near Stoke for the 54-hole stroke-play championship over three days.

The full field played two rounds of 18 holes before a final 18 for the best performers.

French 13-year-old Joseph Linel posted a six-under par 210 to win the trophy.

Adams, who plays at Hagley, closed with a four-under-par 68 to get within three shots.

But he set a course record in winning the Scottish Boys’ Under 14s Open Championship by eight shots.

Adams carded 10-under-par 62 in his first round over the Hawkshill course at Newmachar near Aberdeen and then a level-par 72 to seal success.
