This week’s Devon Alliance event took place at Bude Golf Club. With favourable weather of blue skies and very little wind, it was a very enjoyable day, despite a couple of showers here and there. The day was made even better by some great golf played by Ben Martin and Gary Milne.
Ben Martin shot a steady 1 over par 72 on a course he had not played before, which could have been worse with him being 4 over par through 9 holes, but birdies on the 10th, 17th & 18th saw him finish 4th.
But, a;though a great result for Ben, Gary Milne crept up and just managed to nip in front of him…yes, there is life in the old dog yet! Gary, with a birdie on 18, managed to pip Ben by 1 shot to shoot level par and finish 3rd.
After their rounds, both said that their course management was pretty sound and there are hopefully good signs going into the 2014 season.
