And it was also the first taste of success for the second year trainee at Bromborough Golf Club.

Woods, 22, breezed through the semi-finals 5&3 against Formby Hall’s David Goscombe.

And he was on course for another convincing win as he squared up to Rudding Park Academy’s Andy Rigby who had dispatched Westerhope’s Ross Crowe 2&1.

Woods, who was in the final pairing when Rigby won the Sue Wright Trophy at Helsby in July, raced four ahead after 13 holes and despite a fight-back by his opponent he prevailed two up.

“I’ve not played a lot this season because I’ve been studying for my PGA exams,” said Woods.” “But I’m planning to enter more events next year and perhaps try for the EuroPro Tour.”
