Neil Henderson from The Glen Golf Club has claimed a spot in the Faldo Series Europe Grand Final after winning both the overall and the Boys’ Under-21 prizes at the Faldo Series UK Championship at The Roxburghe.
 
Henderson returned rounds of 73 and 69 for a two-under 142 total, enough for a three-stroke victory over Craig Ross (Kirkhill) and Simon Fairburn (Galashiels) for the overall prize and a four-shot win over Daniel Kay (Dunbar) and Andrew Wallace (Glenbervie) in the Boys’ Under-21 event.
 
The victory earned Henderson a place in the 2010 Faldo Series Europe Grand Final, to be staged over the Faldo Course at the Lough Erne Resort, Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland in September, where he will be joined by Boys’ Under-18 winner Ross, Boys’ Under-16 winner, Ewan Scott, and by Alison Goodwin and Lesley Aitkens, who won the Girls’ Under-21 and Under-16 events respectively.
 
Henderson opened the event with a one over par 73 and then moved ahead of the field with a spectacular eagle on the 546-yard par-5 5th. He dropped a shot on the 469-yard par-4 10th but then romped home with three birdies.
 
Meanwhile, Alison Goodwin (Glenbervie) and Lesley Aitkens (Minto) can also look forward to a trip to Northern Ireland after winning the Girls’ Under-21 and Girls’ Under-16 events. Goodwin produced a second round of 72 to emerge a clear winner in the Under-21 event while Aitken carded rounds of 75 and 79 to finish six shots ahead of Clara Young (North Berwick) in the Under-16 tournament.
