Sandy Lyle is a two-time Major Champion, while his first Legends Tour title ended a 19-year wait for a tournament win.

The Scot took the honours at the 2011 ISPS Handa Senior World Championship presented by Mission Hills in China for what would be his only Legends Tour victory so far.
He hoisted the Claret Jug at Royal St George’s with his Open Championship win in 1985 and three years later added a green jacket as he won The Masters, playing an amazing 7-iron from the bunker on the last to set up a birdie for the win.
Lyle was one of Europe’s “Big Five” golfers in the 80’s and 90’s alongside Ian Woosnam, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer and Nick Faldo – all of them born within 11 months of each other and with 16 Major titles between them.
Sandy won 18 times on the DP World Tour, claimed the Order of Merit on three occasions and was named Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year in 1978.
He played in five Ryder Cup teams and was one of Ian Woosnam’s vice-captains at the K Club in 2006 as Europe stormed to victory over the USA.
Represented Scotland in the World Cup in 1979, 1980 and 1980 – winning the individual title in 1980 and flew the flag in the Dunhill Cup seven times from 1985 to 1992.
Across the Atlantic, he won the Players Championship in 1987.
Sandy was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012.
