Ambrose Old Boy makes the cut at The Open!

For those of you that watched the enthralling 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie this weekend, which saw it’s first ever Italian, Francesco Molinari¬†lift the infamous Claret Jug, you may not have been aware that an Ambrose Old Boy, also made the cut!

Terry Holt attended St. Ambrose between 1970-1977, and is the long serving caddy of Bernhard Langer, whom at 60 years of age, made the final cut in this year’s contest.

We will soon be publishing details of the next SAOBA Golf Day, and who knows, maybe we can entice Terry to join us!
