What They Say? “I’ve spoken to the Tournament Director Mike Stewart regularly over the last few weeks and we want to try and get the course to play as difficult as it can.
“It’s a sneaky golf course, it’s not overly long, but hitting the fairways around here is key.
“It’d be nice to see a winning score around 14 to 16 under par and really show that this place is a nice test.” - Betfred British Masters host, Danny Willett
