Sandy Lyle, who was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in May, has now been selected to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Scottish Golf Awards – 25 years after he became the first Briton to win The Masters at Augusta.
When Seve Ballesteros was asked about Sandy Lyle’s talent, he memorably said he was “the greatest God-given talent in history. If everyone in the world was playing their best, Sandy would win and I’d come second.”
As a long-term Sandy fan I could not be more delighted about the SGU Award, but I would just like to remind all our Scottish readers that Alexander Walter Barr (“Sandy”) Lyle was born in England!
