Sandy Lyle

A teenage prodigy who made his international amateur debut at age 14, Lyle was a prolific winner before turning professional in 1977. Won 18 European Tour events. Taught by his late father, Alex, a long-time professional at Hawkstone Park.
The two-time major champion ended a 19-year wait for a tournament title by winning the inaugural ISPS Handa Senior World Championship in 2011. Started the season strong by finishing runner-up in Australia and T-5th in Japan. Inaugurated into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012 for his achievements across a great career. Rolled back the years with a vintage performance at the 2009 Masters, finishing T-20th. It was his best finish at the Masters since he won in 1988, and was the highlight of a season in which he also finished T-6th at the European Senior Tour?s season-opening Aberdeen Brunei Senior Masters, and T-13th at the Senior Open Championship. Was one of Europe?s big-five players during the 1980s, along with Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer and Ian Woosnam. Became the first Briton to win the British Open since Tony Jacklin in 1969 when he lifted the Claret Jug in 1985 at Royal St. George?s. Three years later, became the first Briton to win the Masters when he triumphed at Augusta National in 1988, famously hitting a stunning 7-iron from a fairway bunker at the last hole to set up a winning birdie.

* Member of 1977 British Walker Cup Team and five European Ryder Cup Teams (1979, ?81, ?83, ?85 and ?87).

* Inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012.
2013 Notes: Turned in his best performance in 19 starts in July when he was on the leaderboard throughout the Senior Open Championship at Royal Birkdale and eventually finished 7th. It marked his best outing in the Tour?s only overseas major, and his best outing on the Champions Tour since the 2012 Senior PGA Championship (T-4th). Made the cut for the 16th time at the Masters, finishing T-54th in April. Played his 35th consecutive British Open and finished 84th at Muirfield.
2014 Notes: Made 14 Champions Tour starts, with his best showing coming in June when he finished T-14th at the Encompass Championship. Finished T-44th at the Masters and missed the cut at the British Open. Also competed at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the European Tour, but missed the cut.
2015 Notes: Missed the cut at the Masters and British Open but finished T-9th at the Senior PGA Championship. Made a strong run for his first Champions Tour title in April when he teamed with Ian Woosnam to finish 2nd at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. The pair led by two shots heading into the final round but were unable to hold off a late charge by Billy Andrade and Joe Durant, who won by three.
2016 Notes: Best finish was T-17th at the Principal Charity. He missed the cut at the Masters and at the British Open. Played in 10 Champions Tour events and finished 94th in the Schwab ranking and money list.
