STUART LITTLE enjoyed a top-ten finish in the BEKO Pro-Am in Turkey as he warmed up for the PGAs of Europe International Team Championship in the Algarve this week.

Little, who captains the England side in Portugal, will have been extremely heartened that he finished one place ahead of former Open champion Darren Clarke.

The Minchinhampton pro finished the three-round tournament on a four under par total of 212, two good rounds of 69 and 68 being rather spoiled by a 75 on the second day.

He still finished just six shots off the winner Simon Edwards (10 under par) and a stroke better than Clarke.
