Royal Liverpool 11/07/2012

1st Cheshire - Best in Area 16th England Ranking 42nd Britain & Ireland Ranking

2nd Angus & Dundee - Best in Area 37th Scotland Ranking

Hunstanton 12/05/2010

2nd Norfolk - Best in Area 28th England Ranking 69th Britain & Ireland Ranking

4th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 16th Scotland Ranking 38th Britain & Ireland Ranking
I played Prestwick as the last of seven rounds in October 2009, and it was well worth saving for last. I lucked into a clear, calm somewhat cool morning, and had the cour...
