High finish for Evans on MENA Tour

Wellingborough’s Ryan Evans used the fourth event on the MENA Tour as a good warm up for his season on the European Challenge Tour as he finished tied sixth in the Dubai Open at Dubai Hills GC.
The 31-year-old, who competed on the main European Tour last year, opened with a round of 70, before moving into contention with a blistering seven-under-par 65, which included six birdies an eagle on the eighth hole.
Despite shooting five more birdies on the final day, Evans had to be content with a level par 72. County colleague Gary Boyd sandwiched a brilliant bogey-free second round 65 in between two scores of 74 to finish in 34th spot, while Kyson Lloyd missed the cut on 146.
