Hill seals crucial point as England claim Boys Home Internationals three-peat

Josh Hill must think this golf lark is easy.

After an unbelievable summer in the UAE which saw him waltz to the Emirates Golf Federation title and Faldo Series Middle East title, the 14-year-old has savoured a winning start to his international career as England sealed a three-peat of Boys Home Internationals titles on Thursday.

And the MENA Tour player in waiting did it in style too, securing a crucial singles point with a 3&2 win over Charlie Denvir as England edged Ireland 8-7 to go through the U-18 teams event at Royal Dornoch in Scotland unbeaten.

The win meant Hill contributed three of a possible four points in his England bow – not bad for a kid who still potentially four years at this level.
