Sports Personality: 1957 Ryder Cup captain Dai Rees

As BBC Sport celebrates 60 years of Sports Personality of the Year, we visit the archives to remember the achievements of all the previous winners.

In 1957, golfer Dai Rees was named winner of Sports Review of the Year.

Welshman Rees became a national celebrity as he guided the 1957 European team to Ryder Cup glory at the Lindrick Golf Club in Yorkshire, their first win over the United States since 1933.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year will celebrate its 60th show when the 2013 event is broadcast live from Leeds on Sunday 15 December from 1940 GMT on BBC One. Further coverage on the BBC Sport website and Radio 5 live.
