WILTSHIRE'S Ben Stow birdied the last two holes to snatch a one-shot victory in the prestigious Brabazon Trophy at Seaton Carew in County Durham.

Stow's record-equalling final round of 66 brought his aggregate to 278, 14 under par, which pipped his England team-mates Ryan Evans and Ashley Chesters.

“This is an amazing feeling after an amazing round,” said Stow, who is from near Salisbury. “This is a massive win for me. Apart from the Amateur Championship it doesn’t come much bigger than to win this English title.

“Some days it is your day and it was mine today. I putted phenomenally. It just looked like the ball would drop in all day long. I had no idea how many I was under par but today was up there with some of the best golf I’ve ever played.”

I watched Ben play the last nine holes on Saturday and he is an excellent golfer. His shot to the green, and subsequent putt for birdie on the 17th was golf of the highest caliber.
