The Peter Thomson Five

Tony Walker

  • Paperback $45.00
  • E-Book $21.99

A golfing legend's greatest triumphs

On the 51st anniversary of his last open championship, Peter Thomson talks about his life, golf and how he achieved Open glory.

Peter Thomson won five golf Open Championships. He is only the third golfer to have won five or more, behind the great Harry Vardon, who won six. It is a feat unlikely to be repeated in the modern era and puts him in the legendary league of sports players like Don Bradman, Rod Laver, Margaret Court and Dawn Fraser.
