A GOLF-MAD boy was left “speechless” after the Open Championship trophy was put in his room for a surprise after school.

Parents of Joshua Marshall had redecorated his room in the theme of the tournament after the 11-year-old visited Carnoustie this year.

His mother put out a post on social media which was picked up by Open organisers the R&A, who said they would like to bring the Claret Jug round to their home in Dundee.

His father Andy Marshall, a teacher at Forfar Academy, said: “To say we were blown over is an understatement, to be honest.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen him as dumbfounded and speechless.”
