Three youngsters from Letchworth Golf Club have all been successful in prestigious competitions.

Junior member Ben Harman, an 18-year-old who lives in Baldock, reached the semi-finals of the St Andrews Boys' Championship.

Ben began the four-day competition by finishing in the top 32 of the original entry of 150.

The qualifying round and the first two knockout rounds were played on the Eden Course.

From the quarter-finals onwards, the matches were played on the Old Course with Ben finally losing to the eventual winner.

Ben, who now plays off scratch, also won the Letchworth club championship back in July.
