David Corben won the mid-amateur competition by two shots after a drama-filled 17th hole.

Corben (Hindhead) held his nerve on the final couple of holes to ensure his six-under through 54 holes was enough to see off Craig Simmons (Shifnal) and Martin Young (Brokenhurst Manor), who both finished four-under par.

The Logan Trophy is open to male amateur golfers aged 35 or over on the first day of the championship.
