make it a massive success. Merseyside Police officers have worked closely with
colleagues in our partner agencies, including:- The R&A, The Royal Birkdale Golf

event for more than 12 months.

to acknowledge the professionalism of our Police Officers and staff, R&A staff,
marshals and volunteers, with whom we have worked over a long period of time to
support the delivery of this event. We are delighted with the way things have
