Cennydd Mills went through the gears on the back nine at Langland Bay to pip Toby Hunt for victory in the POBL Trust Pro-Am by a shot.
Hunt, who is attached to St Mellons Golf Club, Asbri Golf’s Richard Dinsdale both reached the turn in two-under and Wessex Golf Centre’s Michael Watson was a shot further back.
Mills, by contrast, was on level par after making instant amends for bogeys at the third and seventh by responding with birdies.
He repeated the pattern at the tenth and 11th before an eagle at the par-four 14th lit the blue touch paper that saw him negotiate the last five holes in three-under for a round of 67 to claim the £850 winner’s cheque.
Hunt, meanwhile, was unable to maintain his earlier momentum and finished a shot adrift of Mills, one ahead of Watson and two clear of Dinsdale who finished on level par.
Leading scores: C Mills (Mills Coaching) 67 (-3); T Hunt (St Mellons) 68 (-2); M Watson (Wessex Golf Centre) 69 (-1); R Dinsdale (70) (E); S Bebb (Morlais Castle) 71 (+1)
