“But the icing on the cake is the provisional £13,000 prize-fund for the 36-hole School Bus Foundation pro-am at Disley on September 4-5.
“It is sponsored by HCSS Education, part of the Access Group, a leading education finance specialist which provides software solutions, training and consultancy services.”
