Day 61 Play Sunningdale (Old) Play Wentworth (West) Drive Virginia Water/Rye
Day 61 was one of the longest days of the trip. Having had less than a full sleep, I left Ascot Place just after 7 am and drove 10 minutes to the Sunningdale Golf Club (Old Course rated 39, designed by Park 1901 and remodeled by Colt)(played September 1985). This is one of the few courses where my initial member contact did not respond and Plan B was activated. Club secretary Stewart Zuill arranged for an 8 am starting time. However, the starter appeared at 7:55 am and posted a sign on the message board “Old Course Closed – Competition.” The man then quickly disappeared, so I went into the pro shop to ask about this surprise development. I was told that the first tee was open and I should hit off immediately.
The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster for Frenchman, Thomas Levet. Firstly, he was successful in the pressure-packed final qualifying event for the Open Championship at Sunningdale. He carried on his good run of form by winning his National Open, the Alstom Open de France. But now he has been forced out of the Scottish Open and – more than likely – the Open Championship. In recent years it has become the norm for French players to be drenched in champagne after a victory. On Sunday, this tradition continued and Levet’s fellow French pro’s covered him in champagne. After his champagne shower, Levet decided to jump into the greenside lake at the 18th hole where he subsequently fractured his shin. For more details, please click here.
