HOYLAKE, England (July 18, 2014) -- The damage done by the rugged conditions and terrain at Royal Liverpool wasn't limited to tour pros.

The four amateurs in the field at the 2014 Open Championship endured their own struggles.

Amateurs Ashley Chesters (3-over), Cheng-Tsung Pan (4-over), Paul Dunne (4-over) and Bradley Neil (11-over) all missed the weekend cut at Royal Liverpool.

Chesters turned in a solid effort in Round 1 with a 2-under 70 and that helped secure him low amateur honors amongst the small group.

ABOUT THE British Open

The most coveted trophy in the game and one of the most iconic in all of sport: more commonly referred to as the Claret Jug. Within minutes of winning the British Open, the "Champion Golfer of the World" gets his name engraved on that cup, and a place in golfing history.

Amateurs have played an important role in the tournament over the years, with players like Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, and more recently Alfie Plant stepping into the international limelight with their golfing performances.
