SUFFOLK'S England amateur international Jamie Moul enhanced his growing reputation and underlined his claims to a place in the Walker Cup by sharing the Brabazon Trophy with Frenchman Romain Bechu at Forest of Arden yesterday.

The Stoke by Nayland player ended seven under par for his four rounds. He needed to par the final 211-yard hole over water to get his name on the famous trophy. His tee shot found the green and he took two putts.

Moul was leading the field at the end of his third round five under par 67. He dropped four shots on the first six holes on his final round but birdied the 10th and 11th before completing the last seven holes in level par.
