I love that image of Hilton. Obviously, as a career amateur, he must have had some decent level of financial support, though he doesn't seem to have been grand -- West Buckland, his public school in Devon, is not especially famous, and was only founded in 1858. But his images just scream to me 'I'm a Scouser' (Liverpudlian, for those across the pond). You could see him in a different age hanging out with the Beatles. Or running down the wing at Anfield.
Richie Ramsay might have something to say about Fitzpatrick being the first Brit since Hilton to win the US Amateur. First Englishman maybe.

Can't recall seeing (m)any pictures of such a storied course. I'm guessing the low lying nature of the terrain doesn't provide many 'stunning' opportunities, so congrats on capturing the layout so well. We now regularly visit a friend in Crosby and you've tempted me into paying the green fee on next visit - chalk another one up for GCA.For anyone visiting the area check out the beach just to the south, for something stunning and unique.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Another_Place_(sculpture)I'm blown away by it every visit. Maybe Robert Frost is wrong and this is a place to take a moment to look far and deep. Oh I do love to be beside the seaside.
