Sunday at Lytham

At Royal Lytham Golf Club it was a day when the weather Gods decided to present links golf as it is supposed to be. The wind was fresh, the woolly hat much needed and the golf course there to provide the players  with conditions where the cream was always going to rise to the top. Temper, shot making skills and endurance were all put to the test over the final 36 holes and golf does not get any better than this. At Fairhaven down the road, one of the qualifying courses when the Open is hosted by Royal Lytham, an equal test was provided for the juniors and golf in England should be grateful to the members of these two prestigious clubs for giving up their golf courses on a weekend when I am sure they would have loved to play themselves. These members take great pride in hosting these Championships and if it was not for them it would be so much more difficult to develop the World beaters of tomorrow.

At Royal Lytham James Robinson from Southport and Ainsdale, a member of the England A Squad, walked away with the title. It was James’ first major victory but still no surprise to those near to James. From junior golf James has moved on at a steady pace to establish himself as one of the top amateurs in the country and this victory was well deserved. At Fairhaven the winner was Adam Carson from Long Ashton at a quite impressive 15 under par.
