I was wondering how long he had to go.   The last time I saw him in public life (on TV) was at tournament and he looked very frail.

Vale Peter, did much good for the Australian Golf community.


Country golfer on a City course.
Hacker in more ways than one.
Penetration specialist, can cause some people to be nervous.

 

Persuasion is easy when you have large inventory

 

I can do no wrong.

Our greatest Australian golfer is gone after a long struggle with Parkinson's, RIP.

 

I still wonder why he was not awarded a Knighthood for his achievements to golf by the queen ?

As Sir Donald Bradman was to international cricket, Peter Thomson was our equivalent to world golf.
