Par is extremely difficult to attain over the championship course at Lindrick, and Daughtrey’s winning score of 294 after rounds of 72, 75, 72, 75, may be 14 over par, but given scratch on the first two days was 75, the winning score is somewhere closer to four under.

Raybould had an 80 in his second round but responded with a 66 in the third, the lowest round of the week and together with a 68 from Maxey, one of only two scores in the 60s.
