The Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open returns to Royal Porthcawl for the second consecutive year as the build up to The 2010 Ryder Cup at the nearby Celtic Manor Resort continues. South African Bertus Smit claimed his maiden title last year, finishing four strokes clear of Australian David Merriman with home favourite Ian Woosnam, the former Ryder Cup Captain, one of four players a further shot back. It was the second year in a row that Welshman Woosnam had been in the final group. For Smit it was a fairytale win after graduating from the Qualifying School, just three years after the former wheat farmer suffered a stroke which left him partially blinded in one eye.
