Cheshire-born Sir Thomas Henry Cotton was the greatest English golfer from the period between the careers of Harry Vardon and Nick Faldo. A pro in 1924, he won his first British Open in 1934 followed by further wins in 1937 and 1948. He was part of four British Ryder Cup teams, won the British PGA three times, and played in his final Open in 1977 – 50 years after making his debut in the tournament. Cotton worked very hard at his game, often practicing until his hands bled, but he always made time for the good life, being a keen imbiber of Champagne and a natty dresser.
