Golfer makes second (!) albatross in a year at England Golf's Logan Trophy

One golfer at last weekend's Logan Trophy didn't walk away with a win, but he did walk away with a pretty nice consolation.

Luke Rogers shot rounds of 73, 71 and 77 at England Golf's event held at Enville Golf Club from July 7 to 9. 

It was good enough for a tie for 19th at the tournament at 5-over par, and 11 shots back of winner David Corben.

Corben shot rounds of 69, 68, and 73 to win the tournament by two strokes at 6-under par in the 54-hole event.

But the highlight of the event came on Saturday, as Rogers played his second round.

At the par-5 1st, Rogers made an incredible albatross with his 9-iron after hitting driver off the tee.

Rather incredibly though, it wasn't the first albatross Rogers had made in the last 12 months. 

Per England Golf, Rogers also aced the par-4 18th on his home course, Kidderminster GC, in 2022.

And the story gets even better...

His brother, Sam, also made an albatross on the same course just 10 days prior.

Corben, who led after each day of the tournament, had his own dramatic play on Sunday to win the tournament.

After extending his lead to four strokes heading into the final round, Corben made two late bogeys on the back-nine.

Things then went from bad to worse after he had to hit a provisional on the 17th hole with just a two-stroke lead.

Luckily, however, he found his original drive and was able to save par on the hole and win the event.
