European Tour

Wellingborough pro Ryan Evans recorded his best finish on the European Tour for almost two years as he grabbed a share of 11th prize in the Rocco Forte Sicilian Open in Italy.
Evans, whose best result on the European Tour was third in the 2016 Czech Masters, gave himself a chance of a first victory at this level when he carded a blemish-free six-under-par 65 to lead after the opening round.
Although the 31-year-old stayed in contention with a 69 on day two, scores of 71 and 70 over the weekend meant he finished out of the reckoning.
