JOSH Shaw led the field round his home course to win the Sheffield Open Championship.

Two under par rounds at Rotherham Golf club saw Josh ensure a ‘home town’ success, pipping professional Michael Hemstock by one stroke.

A one under par 69 was followed by a 68 in the afternoon round by one-handicapper Josh, for a three under 137. Hemstock followed his opening 70 with a 68.

Youngsters Nick Poppleton (Wath GC) and Ben Brewster (Bawtry GC) both shot level par rounds of 70 to tie for third place.
