SWINDON golfer David Howell experienced mixed fortunes over the final 36 holes as he brought his Volvo Golf Champions campaign to a close.

After carding a one-under-par 71 at Durban Country Club on Saturday despite a double bogey on 11, the two-time Ryder Cup winner did not fare quite so well this morning.

The 38-year-old shot one-over and is currently tied-24th at the time of writing out of an elite field of 36.

Howell finished on one-over for the tournament, his first event of 2014.
