Known fondly as ‘the voice of golf’, Alliss’ commentary was synonymous with the sport until he passed away in December of 2020, aged 89 .

He was an accomplished golfer in his own right, winning as a professional and appearing eight times in the Ryder Cup.

But it was for his work calling the sport for some years that he became better known in households up and down the country .
