Overview

Sandy Lyle is one of Britain's best-loved golfers. In 1985 he became the first Briton for 16 years to win the Open, and 3 years later he was the first British player ever to win the Masters, playing one of the most famous shots of all time to secure victory. At the height of Lyle's success, his swing began to fail. He refused to give up, earning him huge admiration and respect from the golfing public. In 2005 he showed he still has the talent to compete, when he went into the final round of the Open very much in contention, six behind Tiger Woods. Lyle's story is one of classic sporting moments, golfing genius, and gritty determination to battle back to the top, told with his natural charm and wit.
