RT WALKER - EARLY 60'S

This is a picture of RT Walker taken in the early 60's.
He was something of a local prodigy back then, because when Bobby was only 14 years old he became holder of the Downfield Course record by finishing a round in 63, taking a whopping 6 strokes off the previous record, and by the time he was 21 (around the period of the photo) he had held numerous Scottish titles and records.

  1. Bobby Walker was my fathers cousin, but I learned my golf when aged 12 at Stobswell Boys School; Walter Lyle the professional at Caird Park was our tutor; I believe he was Sandy Lyle's uncle. My love of the game lasted for 52 years then I called it a day when my handicap started to rise & rise
