England’s Jamie Moul continued his impressive season with a shared victory in the Brabazon Trophy, one of the biggest amateur events of the year. The four-round event saw Europe?s top amateurs competing at the Forest of Arden.

Moul had given himself a great chance of victory with a 67 in the third round on Sunday morning. But Frenchman Romain Bechu replied in fine style with a bogey-free fourth-round 67 which left Moul needing a birdie on the last for outright victory. His 25ft putt narrowly missed and he tapped in for a share of the trophy.

The win moves Moul even further ahead in the R&A’s World Amateur Golf Ranking and he is surely a certainty for the GB&I Walker Cup team.
