Norfolk PGA order of merit winner Ian Ellis makes steady start to season
Norfolk PGA order of merit winner Ian Ellis made a steady start to the season, finishing second behind Neil Mitchell of Bury Driving Range at Hunstanton.
Mitchell, who won the same event last year, finished with a score of two under par 70 while Costessey Park's Ellis was one shot behind on 71.
'For me it's my first proper event of the year so it's a nice steady start but I made so many mistakes,' said Ellis. 'I had four bogeys and five birdies. I bogeyed three and four and birdied five, seven, nine, bogeyed 10, 11 and birdied 13 and 15.
'It was all over the place. It is just rustiness, but that will improve as the season goes by.
'It's a nice steady start so you know hopefully it's a sign of things to come. I'll keep practising and keep plodding on and hope that it will improve.'
