A Bakers Dozen of British Golf Players


1. Luke Donald
2. Old Tom Morris
3. Peter Alliss
4. Nick Faldo

5. Tommy Armour

A couple of interesting tidbits from Wiki about “The Silver Scot’

During his service in World War I, Armour rose from a private to Staff Major in the Tank Corps. His conduct earned him an audience with George V. However, he lost his sight to a mustard gas explosion and surgeons had to add a metal plate to his head and left arm. During his convalescence, he regained the sight of his right eye and took to golfing.

At the Shawnee Open in 1927, Armour shot the first ever "Archaeopteryx" (15 or more over par) when he shot a 23 on a par 5, for 18-over par. This still stands as the highest score on one hole in PGA history. This historic performance happened just one week after winning the U.S. Open.
