Yorkshire’s Ben Schmidt has underlined his reputation as one of England’s finest prospects with a dominant display of golf in the final of the NSW Amateur.

The 17-year-old from Barnsley was never headed in the final against countryman Callam Farr, easily winning 7 & 5.

Schmidt was a very pleased man after the win saying he stuck to his game plan all day.

“Me and Sean, my caddy had a great game plan and we stuck to it all week.”

“I hit some great golf shots and didn’t make many mistakes, and the result shows what happened out there.”

“You’ve got to hit it i the right places out here.”

Coming off an impressive 2019 where he recorded wins in the Brabazon and Carris Trophies, Schmidt said the the NSW Amateur win should set his year up nicely.

“I did all right last year,” he smiled. “It’s good to get my first win for this season under my belt.”

“It’s a massive confidence boost.”
