0 Paul ticks off Ryder Cup

PaulJenkinsPaul Jenkins, Westridge Golf Club's course manager, has moved a step closer to completing his bucket list after helping to look after the Ryder Cup course.

He was one of 150 staff tasked with keeping the Hazeltine National course in perfect condition for the event, won by the USA earlier this month.

It was his 18th major, leaving just the US PGA and The Masters for him to be involved in.

Paul, who helped to maintain holes nine, ten, 16, 17 and 18, said: "It was an experience money can't buy."

"Like everyone saw on the television, it was aggressive, but I really think that's the way forward for golf because it was exciting."

"The noise from all around the course was amazing."

"There's so many memories and one in particular stands out, when all the greenkeepers went out on to the course early in the morning in our machines in single file."

"They put the scoreboards on to give us some extra light, it really was incredible."

Paul was able to walk the course during the practice sessions and, along the way, met Nick Faldo's former caddy, Fanny Sunesson, who remembered him from a previous event.
