0 Woosie’s back to his roots

Golfing legend Ian Woosnam was returning to Shropshire today to tee off his former club's impressive new clubhouse.

Woosnam was due to open the new facilities at the Oswestry Golf Club this afternoon.

The former US Masters Champion is also a Ryder Cup winner, both as a player and more recently as a captain.

He began his golf as a boy at the Llanymynech Golf Club. But, as his reputation grew, Woosnam and his family joined the Oswestry Golf Club, where they have stayed ever since.

Peter Turner, club secretary and manager, said: "Ian's brother, Gareth, is still the head greenkeeper at the golf club and his late mother Joan was a very involved member and player."
