Wychwood Park Sneak Peak
For all you guys who have qualified for the open final you can get a look at the course on sky sports today. Coverage from last weeks europro is on now and repeats tonight at 10pm.
Good insight into the course, it's got the head pro giving his views on the course and interviews held on the tee of a few of the difficult holes giving advice on how they should be played.

Yeah I saw a bit of that last night Gary, I played in the Gtour the day before that started and it was incredible some of the scores they were coming in with.
Golfshake Open should be a great day!

Some of the guys at the europro event carded 90+ rounds on day 1 so it shows what a tough course it can be.
The wind at the end of the last round casuing all the leading groups to fall to peices is a very common thing up there as well. It's a bit strange calling anywhere an inland links course but it's set up to play like a links and even though it's not quiet the same as a stiff breeze coming straight off the sea the wind still gets pretty bad up there.
If anyone is interested in a warm up game on the run up to the event at Whycwood obviously as a memeber i can get visitors rates for anyone who fancies a round.

after viewing it on sky sports you can appreciate the difference of each hole by playing off the championship tees
thats an idea, darren can we play the GS Open from the back tees

I was in the first group and we whizzed round on that day. In fact, I finished the round, put my clubs in the car, had a drink, grabbed a buggy and just missed the group behind us off the tee. Then there were some biiig gaps (and some pretty peed off players!)
