GOLF: Miller is the winner
1:00pm Thursday 12th June 2014 in Sport
Joe Miller proved his status as the continent’s longest hitters when he won the Long Drivers European Tour event at the Heathfield Park Golf Centre, near Bletchingdon.
The 29-year-old from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, won the contest with a longest drive of 361 yards into the wind and on a sodden fairway in the final against Scott Beaven, from Mortimer, near Reading.
“It was a most enjoyable day,” said Heathfield’s co-owner Geoff Robbins.
“It was amazing to see golfers hit the ball such vast distances.
“We’d love to be able to stage it again.”
