Entries closed over a week ago and the calibre of the field is illustrated quite simply in the detail that the handicap cut mark for the field of 75 players fell at 0.0.
The Championship shall be played over 72 Holes with a cut after 36 holes at the end of the first day of play with the Top 39 & Ties progressing to the two finals rounds on Sunday, June 9th.
