Colin Callander

Colin Callander has worked as a golf writer for well over 30 years and during that time has been Editor of top British title, Golf Monthly, and worked as a freelance for BBC radio and numerous newspapers and magazines. The highlight of his career was watching the whole of the final round Jack Nicklaus played while winning his 18th and last Major title at the 1986 Masters, although, if you buy a drink, he might admit he set out that morning with the intention of watching the Golden Bear's playing partner, and Colin's compatriot, Sandy Lyle, play a few holes.

Fun Fact & Handicap: Colin still has hazy recollections of watching as a child when the late Tony Lema won The Open at St Andrews 1964. Since then, he has watched all the best players in action but, sadly, their prowess has not rubbed off on him because the best he ever play to was 2 (a long time ago) and he's now a struggling 7-handicapper.

Favorite Courses: The Old Course and Prestwick remain his favourite courses but he also has a real soft spot for Sunningdale Old, Brancaster and Pine Valley to name but three more.
