Joseph Amer is aiming to defend his national title when he takes on the latest set of qualifiers for the American Golf Junior Championship.

The 17-year-old Abbey Hill member won the title last year, and will be taking on the country’s best again this year, under the watchful eye of the Sky Sports cameras at the Gainsborough Golf Club in Lincolnshire.

Speaking ahead of his title defence, Amer said: “I am looking forward to defending my title but know the field of competitors will be tough.

“Last year’s competition was an amazing experience to play in and I am hoping it will be no different this year.”
