It isn’t the first taste of success for England Boys’ international Storey.

The north Northumberland golfer made a significant breakthrough in 2012 when he won the English U16 Championship for the McGregor Trophy at Trevose in Cornwall.

He has represented England in competitions such as the Fairhaven Trophy Nations Cup. Last month, he came 19th in the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters.
