EVANS LIKES THE GREEN GREEN GRASS OF FOREST PINES

BRITISH BLIND OPEN 2013

 

One experienced player described the greens at Forest Pines among the most testing he had ever played but that did not seem to bother Chris Evans or his guide Joy Davies as they shot a sparkling nett 70 to come from behind and pip Billy McAllister to win the British Open.

In the sunshine that had prevailed for most of the tournament Chris putted in from off the green for a gross birdie on the eighteenth to clinch the win by three shots.

It was refreshing to see a name from the past and the most senior player in the tournament, Iain Moncrieff move scarcely noticed into third place.

I am sure all those who took part would like to thank Andrew Cook, Emma Cross and all the staff at Forest Pines who made us feel so welcome and worked tirelessly to make the event a success.
