Lothians star Calum Hill chalked up his first US college title triumph after producing an apt performance at Black Bear Golf Club in Louisiana.

The North Berwick teenager fought like a bear as he won the Wallace Jones Invitational, helping the University of Lousiana Monroe secure the team spoils in the process.

Hill, a sophomore, stormed home in 31 for a closing six-under 66 to finish with an 11-under-par total of 205.

“It’s good to finally get a win,” said the Tantallon player, who is coached by Kings Acre head pro Alan Murdoch. “Being so close a few times, it felt great to close one out.”

ULM head coach Walt Williams heaped praise on Hill, saying: “It was great to see Calum play fantastic and get his first collegiate victory over a phenomenal player in Victor Lange from La Tech, arguably one of the best players in the country.”
