A recent letter to The Times on the subject of golf:
Apropos the death of an angler in the excitement of hooking a salmon, golf can be equally hazardous. I was once called when an elderly golfer sank a last putt to score a net 65, by far the best score of his life, and promptly collapsed and died. It was a double tragedy. He hadn’t signed his card, and under the rules was disqualified. I put it to the committee that if it was possible to win the Victoria Cross posthumously, surely the same could apply to the monthly medal. They were unmoved.
