I visited the event on day 3 which began with a downpour, not looking good as I made my way to Ascot to catch the Park & Ride bus to Wentworth. News filtered through that the start was to be delayed but as I got on the bus the rain stopped and gaps were appearing in the clouds, looking better.
The theme this week is ‘Twist‘ so here is a photo of Dustin Johnson from this years US Masters getting his body in a bit of a twist. Graeme McDowell, who played next also manages a good twist.
I will be heading off to Wentworth tomorrow to take in some of the action from the BMW PGA Championship and hoping for an English winner this year.
Below is a summary of how English players have fared over the last 8 years:
2013 – 2nd Khan
2012 – 1st Donald 2nd Rose
2011 – 1st Donald 2nd Westwood
2010 – 1st Khan 2nd Donald
2009 – 1st Casey 2nd Fisher
2008 – 2nd Wilson (lost play off) 3rd Donald
2007 – 2nd Rose (lost play off)
2006 – 1st Howell 2nd Khan
As you can see English players have dominated the event over recent years and I’m hoping Ian Poulter will be back to his best this weekend to lift the trophy.
This weeks challenge is titled Work of Art, well this was a lovely work of art next to the Pro Shop at Culcreiff Golf Club which is located next to the Crieff Hydro Hotel.
The Lambourne Club is set in 180 acres of picturesque Buckinghamshire countryside, the course resides among ancient oaks, beech trees and no less than six serene lakes.
This week’s theme of Spring was easy for me, it is always a photogenic time of year on the golf course.
I took a break from the Weekly Photo challenges but have decided to participate again. This week the challenge is “Letters” and I will try to continue to provide photos that fit the theme of Golf.
Should I have saved this for a “Letters and Numbers” theme?
Foxhills Golf Resort is fortunate to have two great courses that wind through the beautiful Surrey landscape; if you want to score well here you need to negotiate fairways lined by Scots pine, beech and silver birch trees.
