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.
I'm good, but no-one seems to care.
Now I find out a French au-pair is NOT a breed of goat!
Knock Knock ! Who's There?
Peter ! Peter Who?

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.
