SCOTT PARKER edged out Sam Keyte in an all-North Devon tussle for a place in the England Golf National Skills Challenge final.
The pair finished joint first in the Tour 12-14 years section in the South West final at the Kendleshire, Bristol.
But Scott, of Royal North Devon, came out on top on countback and will go for glory at the National Golf Centre in Lincolnshire on September 28.
Sam, of Holsworthy, won the under-14 section last year and went on to finish second in the national final.
This season he has captained Devon under-14s to victory against Cornwall and Dorset. He also finished second in the Exeter Junior Open and third in spring and summer county meetings at Crediton and Teignmouth, as well as representing Holsworthy in men's team competitions.
Twenty boys and girls took part in the South West finals.
They qualified after competing in two National Skills Challenge events at their home clubs.
The boy and girls winners in each age group go to the national final.
Carys Morris, of Portmore, will be there in the Rookie 8 years and under category.
Another Portmore player, Anna Gooderham, took part in the Rookie 9-11 years regional final.
