The Phantom of the Open

We had a great start to our 16th season on 6 Sept 2022:  co-author Scott Murray introduced our opening film "The Phantom of the Open" and there was spontaneous applause at the end of the film! 

Scott is local to Godalming and is a writer and sports historian. He is a regular contributor to the Guardian, covering all the men's and women's golf majors live online, as well as EPL and UCL football, and the much-loved satirical daily newsletter, The Fiver.  He also writes for the Guardian on golf history, while his last book, The Title, told the story of top-flight English football from its infancy in 1888 to the birth of the Premier League in 1992. 

Scott (on the left) and our very own Michael O'Sullivan had a good and humorous tone between them during the Q&A before the film.  It was fascinating to hear about the writing, how the film got made and the tidbits Scott shared with us.
