It started with a blip, but Matthew Millar ensured regular service resumed with a scintillating second round to win the Queanbeyan Open.
Millar, already this summer the champion of the Murray Open, carded a blemish-free five-under-par 65 to add a “home-town” three-stroke victory to his rapidly expanding resume.
