Yes, sad news Ray

Was hoping he might have a go on the senior tour, but guess not.

As you say, a true legend, brought the modern game a long way.

It was absolutely fantastic, Ray. There have been better golfers, sure, but none with quite his air of magic or presence.

My favourite non british sportsman, just ahead of Viv Richards and John McCenroe.

I used to love how he went about the game so carefree as such like nothing was a problem to him bunker,rough no problem .
