Double bogey doesn’t dent Miller’s dominance

SCRATCH handicapper Peter Miller has run away with the Wodonga club championship.

The now three-time champion took a commanding lead into the final round and had the title in his keeping when he was putting for an outward 32 on the ninth.

A double bogey at the last left Miller, 33, with a four-round total of 289, 1-over par and 15 shots clear of Justin Gamble.

“I really wanted to finish under par and was looking good at the last,” Miller said.

“I was 60 short for two on the par 5 and put it over the back and you can never get it up and down from there.

“But you can’t complain about the course — the fairways are great and the greens near perfect.

“I was pretty straight off the tee in the four rounds and never really in any trouble.

“But Sunday was tough into the wind with some of the pin placements — the ball was coming in sideways from some approach shots.”

US college-bound Border Young Achiever of the Year nominee Casey Wild won the A grade women by five shots.

Wild’s two-under par 70 in the opening round set up the victory over Judy Langford.
