Veteran golf commentator, and former player, Peter Alliss has died at the age of 89.
Known as ‘The Voice of Golf’ thanks to his work with the BBC, Alliss has worked in golf coverage since the 1960s when he was still a professional player.
He took on the role of lead golf commentator for the BBC in 1978 and was expected to retire after next year’s Ryder Cup, which would have seen him complete 60 years in boradcasting.
As a player, he managed five top 10 finishes at the Open and played on eight Ryder Cup teams, winning once. (Metro)
