YOUNG golfer Nicky Frost has scooped the county under 18s title.

The 15-year-old had a day to remember on Friday when he finished three under par on the Belton Park course to lift the J. Woodroffe Walter Cup.

“It feels alright,” said the Boston Golf Club youngster, admitting the winning feeling was still sinking in.

Competing against Yellowbelly county’s top young players, Frost got off to a superb start on the par 71 course.

His four-under round of 67 in the morning’s 18 holes put him in contention for the trophy.

And he kept his cool in the afternoon round, finishing one over par on 72, enough to claim victory.

Frost - who plays off a three handicap - only took up golf four years ago.

And that was seemingly by accident.

He was visiting the Cowbridge club as his dad Trevor was playing.

And to kill time he took a club out and started hitting some balls.

Club pro Nick Hiom spotted him and suggested young Nicky take up the sport due to his natural swing.

And from then on Frost was hooked, even turning his back on the Lincoln City youth academy, where he was on the books, to concentrate on his golf.

Frost, of Wellington Road, is currently a Boston GC A Team member and also represents the Lincolnshire Under 18s side.

However, the Haven High youngster will not have much time to rest on his victory, as he is now preparing for the club’s championships on Sunday.

This Sunday, Boston Golf Club hosted a four-man team event with an unusual better ball scoring format.

The eventual winners with a score of 114 were Dave Carter, Rob Whitley, Neil Timby and Dick Reed.

Results: 1 Dave Carter, Robert J. Whitley, Neil Timby and Dick Reed 114; 2 Paul O’Connor, Stephen Bradley, Trevor West and Chris Runnalls 103, 3 Mick Rennison, Nigel Newark, Darren Gibbons and Pat Stocks 99; 4 Denis Limb, Graham Day, Keith Vickers and Neville A. Kemp 99; 5 Pat Malkinson, Callum Bastock, Mark McPhail and Paul Bastock.
