Despite a distinguished amateur record, the San Diego resident played a limited tournament schedule in recent years. Becoming eligible for the Super Senior division, however, motivated him to practice. He delivered, withstanding the final round pressure of leading the tournament and holding off two-time defending champion Kemp Richardson.
One of the most entertaining PerryGolf experiences imaginable is to combine your golf schedule with attendance to the British Open. Better still, all four rounds will be played on Open venues each comfortably established on GOLF Magazine’s World 100; The Ailsa Course at Turnberry (18), Royal Troon (48), Royal Birkdale (30) and Royal Lytham & St Annes (57). The chance to see the world’s best try their hand at the bump, the run, the heather and the gorse is unique, occasionally even therapeutic! Our tour treats you to the drama at its peak over the weekend at the 2014 Open venue, Royal Liverpool, the site where Bobby Jones claimed the third leg of golf’s original Grand Slam in 1930.
Royal Birkdale has become the very first Open Championship venue in England to obtain the GolfMark; awarded by the English Golf Union.
GolfMark is a national scheme which finds and acknowledges junior and beginner-friendly golf facilities. This recognition means that Royal Birkdale is now able to improve its practice and coaching facilities for beginners through the funding provided by GolfMark.
