The Amateur Championship | Final Highlights

Laird Shepherd produced one of the greatest ever comebacks to win The 126th Amateur Championship in emotional scenes at Nairn. In an all-England 36-hole Final with Monty Scowsill over the renowned Highland links, the 23-year-old remarkably fought back from eight down after 17 holes and from four down with four to play to triumph at the 38th hole in an extraordinary match.
