IM Tozer (217)
IM Bellin (213)
Spence (207)
Chapman (200)
Orton (199)

Brendan O'Gorman's in the Major and he's been wielding his camera. Expect arty shots to follow.

Updates only on Twitter from now on.

Hi Brendan et al

I was wielding my camera too, and totally agree, what a fantastic venue that was. Apologies for pretentious music etc :)

Ted,

Congrats on your splendid showing - joint second in the Open is impressive. My loss to you last year doesn't hurt quite so much now!
