Enefer lifts Eagle Orchid title at Montrose

Will Enefer won The Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters at Montrose Golf Links by three shots after going into the day two shots off the lead.

The event was part of the PGA EuroPro tour and the final day fell on on Friday June 25.

Five under

Enefer was bogey-free on his final round, with a closing day five-under for 66.

He holed some wonderful putts along the way, including on the 9th which proved to be the decisive moment in the end.

The 23-year old learned from past experiences on final days where he’s been in contention as he carried himself around in a controlled manner as others around him crumbled early on.

Enefer said: “It’s absolutely massive. The bogey-free was definitely more on my mind than the score.

“I thought if I didn’t go backwards then players had to come and get me so that was definitely the game plan today.

“I felt it as soon as I putted on the 18th.

“I thought ‘this is just the start now, I’ve got that off my back wherever I play golf now around the world I think I can compete’.”

Out of bounds

Overnight leader Sam Broadhurst saw his lead disappear instantly off the tee, after hitting his opening shot out of bounds.

He took a double bogey so suddenly found himself right back in amongst his fellow competitors.

Broadhurst never fully recovered, bogeying the third after being way short of the green on the par three. A tied 14th finish was the end result of a tricky day for him.

With Broadhurst’s demise, came opportunities for others with Sean Lawrie pushing Enefer all the way.

Lawrie of Paul Lawrie Golf Centre was leading as he took his tee shot on the 18th before eventually making bogey. This left him one shot off Enefer, with the eventual winner still with four holes to play.

The Scotsman can be happy with his efforts though, signing for a final day 66 (-5) to take a share of second.

Top six

Calum Fyfe (Trinifold Sports) was there or thereabouts going into the last day and a 67 (-4) meant he shared second with Lawrie.

Fyfe disappeared into the field at Cumberwell Park having had the lead going into the last day. This showing at Montrose Golf Links displayed an ability to grind it out and attack the final round.

Joe Dean took fourth on his own for his best finish on the tour so far this season.

The Worksop golfer putting together cards of 67, 64, and 69, while Clevedon Golf Club’s Ashley Mansell had a far less eventful day than his previous two for a level par final round which gave him fifth overall.

One of the better final days came from Ryan Harmer (Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club) with a third round 65 (-6) which did at one point moving him top of the leaderboard.

Harmer taking a share of the spoils at tied sixth with John Parry, James Allan, Bradley Bawden, and Nick Watson.
