to About

Current Issue: No.9

Featured Story: In 1964, the BBC’s Tonight programme unearthed a story of one man’s desire to steer the trophy back to Blighty, a millionaire management consultant called Ernest Butten who had started a scheme to train selected young professional golfers to win back the Open Championship for Britain.

“These four young men,” said the interviewer in his clipped English accent, “Sandy Wilson, Tony Martin, Jim McAlister and Tommy Horton have just signed away their freedom for the next three years. They'll eat what they're told when they're told, and even learn to breathe the way they’re told, and all this is with one aim in mind… to produce a British golfer who by 1967 will win the British Open and the American Open Championship.

"In a golfing world dominated by irrelevant stats and money talks it is refreshing to read about the real value of the game we all love."
