The Royal and Ancient Golf Club yesterday reflected on a 'superb' 122nd championship at Sandwich and declared that the Kent course remains on the Open rota.

'We have decided not to hold an Open at Carnoustie,' Michael Bonallack, the R & A secretary, said. 'It is a magnificent course but some of the facilities make it impractical.'Reuse content
