@8 yes, this piece was probably checked by that legend of British Golf, Michael Vaughan. Didn't see him at the Masters this year? Mind you I watched it on Sky.
The Beeb often makes cockups like this one with the picture, Another glitch of the site is occasionally having two year old stories down the right hand column.I too query the word dynasty. Bernard's happily survived, not sure Kirsty is much of a legend (hat reminds me, I must buy a new Swiss ball.....)Good luck to Stephen this season too.
No surprise that the Beeb can't even get a photo the right way round - the effort and resources they put into golf is appalling.On a happier note, very good to see that BG is on the mend.
Gallacher was indeed a stalwart of the professional game,how sad that the ignorance at the BBC shows him playing left-handed.Was it the same person who described Westwood's tee shot at Augusta as a 'nice right to left fade'?The 'Gallacher dynasty in sport'?....hardly,and I don't suppose that the word 'nepotism' ever occurred to the author?Great to see him recovered and well but poor report.
Always comes across as a modest, thoroughly nice bloke.
As a student, I carried the scoreboard for Bernard and Gay Brewer at the 74 Dunlop Masters at St. Pierre in the final round. Unlike Jacklin, he was happy to chat to me and the had the audacity to beat Gary Player (in his annus mirabilis) in the play-off. I have always thought he could have won more. I notice Gary always asks his daughter Kirsty how he is at the Augusta Par 3 interview for Sky.
How long has Bernard been left-handed?
Yes I noticed that. It also brings home the importance of having CPR equipment in as many places as possible but especially all sports clubs
It might just be me - but he looks like he is playing left handed in that picture... he is right handed surely?Mirror image?
