Sam Little sets off on a run to see where his approach shot landed on the 17th during his first-round match of the English Amateur Championship at the Royal Cinque Ports in Deal yesterday. Despite his 2 and 1 defeat by Matthew Stanford, Little, 16, who plays at Moor Park and had his father, Peter, employed as his caddie, made a big impression on his opponent. Stanford, one of Britain's leading amateur internationals, said the youngster's play for the first 12 holes was of the highest class.
