Golf: Miller lands Masters spot; GOLF: The latest on the local scene.

NUNEATON'S Dave Miller has won through to the final of the World Amateur Masters, to be staged in Spain next month.

Five-handicapper Miller, a former captain at his Whitestone club, came back from 26th place after the opening round at Wentworth's Edinburgh Course with a superb final 18 holes over the infamous West Course.

"Playing the Burma Road was a fantastic experience, but I actually found the Edinburgh a very tight, more difficult course," said Miller.

"But, having said that, walking down the 18th on the West with the stands and hospitality suites in place for this week's World Matchplay Championship made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.

"I had not played the West course since I was 19-years-old and that's a long time ago," he joked, adding, "a certain Mr Ernie Els has made a few changes in recent years and it's a great test of golf."

Miller is looking forward to playing in the prestigious Volvo-sponsored final, which goes ahead over two rounds on November 2-3 at the Manuel Pinero-designed La Quinta course near Marbella.
