Fuller, 15, clinched a stunning 13-stroke victory from Lily May Humphreys when she closed with a two-under 70 to finish on one-under-par 215

Wilson closed with an 80 to finish tied with Hannah Screen on 234 as Hertfordshire’s Max Hopkins, 14, made history by becoming the youngest winner of the boys event since it was first played in 1985.

Despite his tender years, Hopkins from Bishop’s Stortford, kept his nerve during the three-day event to post scores of 71, 72 and 71 on Quinta do Lago’s highly-acclaimed North Course to finish two-under par and three shots clear of runner-up Ben Jones from Brampton in Northamptonshire.

Officially opened by Paul McGinley in October 2014, the 6,156 metre North Course layout has quickly risen to become one of the new stars of European golf, and played a key role in Quinta do Lago being named as Portugal’s best golf resort in Golf World’s inaugural rankings of the Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe 2016/17.
