Rhys Pugh, the 18 year old East Tennessee State University student from Wales has captured the Chartis Europe sponsored European Amateur Championship at Carton House Golf Club.
A nervy 90 minute wait ensued, and with word filtering through to the clubhouse that Pugh’s Welsh teammate, James Frazer had left a putt hanging over the edge of the hole on 18, which would have forced a play-off, Pugh began to let it sink in that he was the European Amateur Champion for 2012.
