EDINBURGH ace Andrew Oldcorn reckons he’s coming into form just at the right time on the European Senior Tour.

The 52-year-old is in Holland this week for the Van Lanschot Senior Open starting tomorrow.

He was runner-up in the event at Royal Haagsche Golf & Country Club in The Hague two years ago and is feeling confident as he now bids to go one better. A fortnight ago, Oldcorn put up a brave defence of the PGA Seniors title, finishing joint runner-up at Slaley Hall in Northumberland.

“Slaley Hall was a step forward,” said Oldcorn. “It was nice to be in the position of playing under pressure again and that bodes well for the next few weeks. I like the course at Royal Haagsche and I’m looking forward to playing it again. I’ve played well in both of my previous appearances so I feel as though I can play well here.”

The Kings Acre touring pro added: “I started my first two seasons on the Senior Tour well, whereas this year has been more of a steady build-up.

“I’ve got a nice block of three events coming now so hopefully it will be the start of a big summer for me.”
