Ogilvy: Tarnished – How the Stonehaven Cup lost its lustre

Ogilvy: Tarnished – How the Stonehaven Cup lost its lustre

Growing up in Melbourne, I was always told that the Australian Open was golf’s ‘fifth major’. It had such a great history, so the case was persuasive. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player had all regularly come down to play and all three had won the event. So I was sold. 12 Nov 2018
