As we ended our post yesterday we promised you that there would be vans.  Just look at them lined up outside the green club.  Seems like a van is a prerequisite to be a professional!

We hoped you enjoyed these photos.  A great big thank you to Peter for being so kind to take them and to forward them to us so we could share them with you.
