Spain Win the European Boys' Team Championship

Spain have won the European Boys' Team Championship, Jean-Louis Dupont Trophy, at Golf Resort Kaskada, Brno.

The Spanish side looked like the team to beat after comfortably topping the stroke play qualifying on 16-under-par, 13 shots ahead of second-placed Sweden.

David Puig lead the way for the team. A 10-under-par total over the first two days, which inlcuded a six-under-par 66, was the lowest aggregate score by four shots. 

Last year's runners-up comfortably defeated hosts, the Czech Republic, in the quarter-finals, and got through a tight match with Germany in the semi-finals to setup a match with Switzerland for the trophy.

Spain won the first two morning foursomes matches, although Switzerland battled back to claim the first two afternoon singles matches in just their second ever European Boys' Team Championship final. 

David Puig claimed a dominant 6&4 win meaning Eduard Rousaud would hole the winning putt on the 16th to secure Spain's first title since 2011.

In the bronze medal match, Sweden defeated Germany, 4-3 to finish in third.

In the other half of the championship, Scotland and Wales both lost their first two Flight B matches, meaning they have been relegated to the Division 2 event.

In total, three teams are relegated each year, meaning the match between Italy and Belgium on the final day would decide who remains in Division 1. The Italians proved too strong and secured their place in Division 1 with a 4.5-0.5 victory. 

The 2019 European Boys' Team Championship will travel to Golf de Chantilly, France, for the second time in the event's history, and for the first time since 1987.
