Oldcorn aims to go one better in Netherlands
Andrew Oldcorn believes he is coming into form just at the right time as he returns to the Netherlands for this week’s the Van Lanschot Senior Open.
The 52-year-old Scot came up just short in his bid to defend the ISPS Handa PGA Seniors Championship a fortnight ago, finishing joint runner-up to Paul Wesselingh.
“That was a step forward,” said Oldcorn, who had an operation to remove a cataract last autumn. “It was nice to be playing under pressure again and that bodes well for the next few weeks.”
Compatriot Peter Smith also aims to build on a morale-boosting display in the ISPS Handa PGA Seniors Championship, where he tied fifth, and hopes for some local support, having previously worked as the head professional at Hilversumsche Golf Club, host venue for September’s KLM Open.
“I know the area and the course well and might even have a few old members come along to cheer me on,” said Smith.
They are joined by ex-Ryder Cup captains Sam Torrance and Ian Woosnam, and the top two on last year’s Order of Merit, Peter Fowler and Barry Lane.
