Mark Phillips: Staying ahead of the game *H&H VIP*


  • In staying ahead of the game in the world of course design, I visit as many courses as I can to see what others are doing. Kentucky — designed by Tokyo 2020 designer Derek di Grazia — and Badminton, designed by Eric Winter, were very different to each other but definitely CCI5* on technical difficulty. It is important these differences exist as riders can get used to jumping one designer’s courses.
