SOTOGRANDE, Spain -- Jack Hume is quickly climbing near the top of the amateur golf world, cruising to a six-stroke victory at the European Nations Cup in Cádiz.

It was Hume's second win in three weeks following his victory in the South African Amateur Strokeplay and comes with the added bonus of leading Ireland to the team title. Ireland beat out France by 10 shots with Wales, England, and Scotland rounding out the top 5.

Spain won the women's team title by eight shots over Austria and 10 shots France with Austria's Emma Spitz edging out Spain's Maria Parra by two shots for the individual title.
