Royal Troon played host this weekend to "The Open" well last weekend (July 10th) Virginia Golf Club saw its first major of the year settled convincingly. After Day 1 many members were in contention, with the pressure mounting and the chance of golfing immortality within their grasps. Some rose to the occasion, some crashed and burned, others forgot to put their name on the timesheet (PRO), however when the dust settled one man stood tall and was proclaimed champion. This titan amongst golfers was Terry Smith, beating the field by 5 shots after a solid first round was built upon. Congratulations Terry. In second place was Stephen Coleman with a second round 5 shots better than his first day and in third place by count back was Ray Foley. The presentation was made in the Lakeside Manor and everyone agreed the competition was fierce this year. Well done all, roll on the next major.
