“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.
