Mark Phillips: Let’s not lose Oliver Townend long term *H&H VIP*

Opinion

After weeks of heat and drought, it seems strange to be back into a normal English summer. My two recent high-profile course-designing jobs were Barbury — with a course William Fox-Pitt called boring, despite or even because of the new layout — and Gatcombe, where Harry Meade condemned the “roundabouts”. I guess no one can get it right every time, but my most exciting part of the season is coming up now.
