The Englishman was one of the highest ranked professionals taking part in the annual fundraising event for breast cancer awareness.

In total, 255 players entered the tournament with a sum of £9000 being raised for the Breast Cancer NOW Foundation.

Milkins became the eighth different champion of the Pink Ribbon since its inception by Paul Mount in 2010.
