Ellis makes English Amateur final
5:25pm Friday 3rd August 2012 in Golf
The Hampshire star beat Wiltshire's Jordan Smith on the first extra hole at Silloth-on-Solway, after their semi-final had finished all square.
Ellis, 16, had earlier claimed a two-hole victory against England international Seb Crookall-Nixon in a last-eight encounter.
He will contest the prestigious title tomorrow against Henry Tomlinson, of Royal Lytham & St Annes, who also needed sudden death to win his semi-final.
Tomlinson had also beaten Corhampton's Neil Raymond in the quarter-finals this morning.
