Disabled British Open 2012

This past week, I had the privilege of travelling with James Hourigan to England where James competed in the Disabled British Open, played at East Sussex National Golf Resort. The tournament course was played on their East course and proved to be in awesome condition, playing very tough yet rewarding of a good golf shot.




Always quick to learn, we managed to put together a very comprehensive game plan and decided early on to keep our golf ball out of the hay. As with most tournament venues, greens are sped up during the week and the rough is left to grow as it wishes. Miss a fairway and pay the price, sometimes play a provisional ball. Lance Bouah joined us for our first practice round and I am sure he will back me up and tell you that the golf course was a great test of golf.

With perfect weather leading up to the tournament, not typically what the English weather is all about, the bomb dropped on Saturday with the start of the tournament and we were out to play in gale force winds and pouring rain.


James played an incredible first round, returning in 84 shots for a tie for 4th place. Round 2 and we were teeing off on the second to last match, with the greens tricked up and a few more tougher pins, James finished the event in a very credible 11th position.

Well done James, it was an absolute treat caddying for you and watching you play some really amazing golf in some very testing conditions.

James will be travelling to Denmark next month where he will be competing in the European Disabled Championship, with the great tournament preparation from last week, James will be ready to show the world how this amazing game is played.
