Porthmadog 11/07/2012

7th North Wales - Best in Area 21st Wales Ranking

Royal Liverpool 11/07/2012

1st Cheshire - Best in Area 15th England Ranking 39th Britain & Ireland Ranking

2nd Angus & Dundee - Best in Area 46th Scotland Ranking

Hunstanton 12/05/2010

2nd Norfolk - Best in Area 29th England Ranking 69th Britain & Ireland Ranking

Prestwick 19/10/2009

4th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 15th Scotland Ranking 35th 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...
