LEWIS Hollingworth won the Sheffield Union Amateur Strokeplay Championship after a sudden death play-off.

The Tankersley Park youngster had finished on 142, level with Wath GC’s Gary Fullwood at Hillsborough GC, and he then took the title in the play-off.

In third place, six shots back on 148, was Simon Toplis (73, 75) followed by James Gregg of Abbeydale on 149 (77, 72).

Then came John Bragger (Tinsley Park) 150, Ross Mackay (Beauchief) 152, Greg Tickell (Hallamshire) 152 Mike Hammond (Wath) Matt Gibson (Hillsborough) Tom Pipes Hillsborough all 153.
