« I can not wait to be thererejoices in advance the British star. I think that’Andrew Green did a very good job and that the renovation allowed the East Course to regain its former glory. I just hope the weather will be nice this week. But I can’t wait to get back to Oak Hill (Editor’s note, which also hosted the 1980, 2003 and 2013 editions).
