Norfolk’s Andy Marshall signed off with two birdies in his closing three holes to grab a share of fourth place in the London Open – the first PGA East region event he has played.

Marshall, 43, shot rounds of 71 and 70 at West Essex Golf Club to finish at one-over-par – two behind the winner Steve Cipa.

Marshall said: “I finished birdie-par-birdie, which is always quite pleasing. It was a course that I haven’t played before and I found it tricky but I hit the ball quite well.”

He also plans to play two more of the East’s Order of Merit two-dayers later in the season.

Marshall added: “I’ll play a handful of events and am quite looking forward to it because the travelling is a lot easier. It’s quite nice to just get in the car whenever you want and drive down the road – much more enjoyable.”

Eaton’s head PGA professional Mark Allen also played some decent golf as he finished tied- 16th in an 80-strong field.
