Yorkshire golf: Oulton Hall's Kevin Taylor and Malcolm Crowson heading for final on Ryder Cup stage
After a closely-fought qualifying competition at High Legh Park, the pair emerged with 24pts and on the Brabazon Course on September 9-10 will look to add the UK title in the better ball Stableford competition.
Taylor and Crowson played solid golf in difficult, wet conditions and go forward to the final at the iconic Ryder Cup venue in the Midlands alongside the winners of 19 other qualifying competitions across the UK and Ireland.

“It gives people the chance to play championship golf after work, getting all the excitement of top level competition in half the time.”
Entry to all of the American Golf Championships, including the American Golf 9 Hole, Junior, Ladies and Senior Championships, is free.
