Andrew Oldcorn, the sole Scot to make it to the weekend, felt “beaten up” at the end of the Senior Open at Carnoustie.
The 56-year-old Edinburgh man closed with a 74 for a six-over-par total, finishing just outside the top 40 in an event won by England’s Paul Broadhurst on 11-under.
“The course defeated me and I feel beaten up,” declared Oldcorn. “It was playing its full length at 7300 yards and that is too long for me. The pins were also brutal today.” Oldcorn is now taking a much-needed rest before trying to qualify for the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Archerfield Links next week.
“Paul has kindly given me a spot in his qualifier next Monday so I’ll be going out with all guns blazing in that,” he said.
