RIP Doug Sanders

Our Kinda Soldier

American Doug Sanders, who sadly will always be remembered for missing a three-foot putt to win the 1970 Open Championship has died of natural causes aged 86. As we remember the flamboyant golfer from Cedartown, Georgia we look back at an interview GolfPunk was lucky enough to have with the legend that is Sanders, Our Kinda Soldier!

Doug Sanders finished runner up in the Open (twice), The US Open and the PGA, and was 4th in the Masters. But he's about a lot more than that, as The Rat Pack would testify...

Pour yourself a long cool drink and soak up the anecdotes of a truly extraordinary man living in a truly extraordinary time...
