Sam Cutting was left wondering what might have been after carding +3 to finish T58th in a Jamega Tour event at Mentmore Golf and Country Club.
Cutting, who became a member at Berkhamsted Golf Club aged 10, started the event very well and was -3 at the turn on the first day.
However, he finished poorly and threw away shots which effectively took him out of contention for the tournament as he ended up with a round of 75.
On day two, Cutting struggled early on, but recovered well to make a couple of birdies round the turn.
He made an eagle at 16 to get to -2, but finished bogey bogey to shoot 72 overall.
“It was a week of what might have been really, with the back 9 on Monday derailing my chances,” said Cutting.
He will be hoping to put things right in his next tournament, on May 19 and 20 at Collingtree Park.
