The sun has set on the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews but we're in luck as the DP World Tour returns to Hillside Golf Club in Southport - the home of England's Golf Coast.

A true championship test, Hillside is regarded as one of the finest links golf courses not to have hosted the Open Championship. It boasts a track record of staging some of the highest profile events, including the Tour's flagship PGA Championship in 1982, the 2019 British Masters, the Amateur Championship and a regular for Open Final Qualifying.

While many of the household names have opted for a rest following the antics at the Home of Golf, the likes of Robert MacIntyre, who finished in a tie for 34th at St Andrews, Thorbjorn Olesen and Marcus Armitage are included in the field. 

Defending champion Calum Hill is not present this week as he continues with a leg injury following an insect bite suffered towards the end of 2021, soon after he’d finished in the top-20 in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on home soil.

The Scotsman was forced to withdraw after the opening round of the Portugal Masters in early November before suffering the same fate a fortnight later in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

Hill finished 32nd in the Race to Dubai, agonisingly missing out on securing a spot in the 150th Open Championship on his home turf at St Andrews.

With Hill's absence, a new Cazoo Classic champion will be crowned on Sunday evening, alongside a cheque for €291,660 and 460 valuable Race to Dubai points.
