Kilspindie, Stages the World Hickory Open for the First Time in October
According to The World Hickory Chairman Hamish Steedman, some 16 nations are entered - primarily from Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, France and the United States, with 20 professionals in the field this year.
Sadly, the current holder Sandy Lyle is unable to play this year. However, several well-known names are likely to be in the field. For instance, former Lions captain Gavin Hastings will be taking part, as well as professionals Andrew Marshall and Zack Saltman, both these pros have previously managed the almost impossible feat of equalling Sandy Lyle’s magnificent 67 strokes with hickory-shafted clubs around the challenging Panmure links last year.
