Bishop's Stortford Golf Club member and Florida Gulf Coast University student Jon Hopkins comes second in tournament at Furman University in South Carolina
Jon Hopkins produced his best performance across the Atlantic to date when he came second in the Division One Inter Collegiate tournament.
The 21-year-old Bishop's Stortford Golf Club member, who is studying at Florida Gulf Coast University in America, finished three shots behind winner Keller Harper at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.
Not even a rain delay in the second round and a similar break for lightning in the third could halt Hopkins' progress as he pushed the victor all the way with rounds of 71, 70 and 69 in the 54-hole competition as he compiled a three-under-par total of 210.
Hopkins has been in a rich vein of form this semester with improving finishes of 21st, 11th and 8th being secured before this latest outing.
