NEWTON Green's Adam Woodhead finished eighth in a rain-affected Andalucian Boys' Open final, at Finca Cortesin - home of the Volvo World Match Play Final.

The Suffolk player had been looking for a top-three place after finishing eighth and then fifth in the previous two years, but a few reckless drives in the first three of the five rounds scheduled over different courses spoiled his chances.

Additionally, his opening round was disrupted when his father, Ian, who was caddying, lost his footing on the steps of eighth tee and finished up in hospital being treated for a fractured wrist.

In a strong field of 24 boys who had qualified from throughout the United Kingdom, Adam was seventh after the first round and held the position on the second day, but the third day was washed out. On the fourth day he slipped to 11th, but still qualified for the final round at Finca, where fine blue skies were finally seen and the Suffolk player recorded a seven over par which was good enough to promote his to eighth.
