Saunton Golf Pro to Captain Britain PGA Cup Team
Albert MacKenzie has been named as the 2017 PGA Cup captain for Great Britain and Ireland's defence of the Llandudno Trophy.
The Saunton Golf Club pro was vice-captain to Jon Bevan in Britain's historic triumph at CordeValle last year – their first victory in the United States.
Mackenzie has come close to qualifying for the team as a player in the biennial contest – a Ryder Cup-style event – several times and lost out in a play-off in 2005 at Woodhall Spa.
He described the invitation to captain the PGA Cup team on home soil as the highlight of his competitive professional career
