• "Top Pro Golf" aired on Australian television in the early 1960s, and introduced me to the wonderful world of golf.

    From what I can remember, it was a highly polished series with excellent camera work and close interaction between the host and the players.

    This was where I first saw the brilliant play of Gary Player and Arnold Palmer, as they blasted their way round a succession of US courses.

    Somewhere, someone must have prints of episodes, so one day I hope to once again admire my golfing heroes in their early youth.

    There were two other golf shows airing at around the same time, "Shell's Wonderful World of Golf" and "World Championship Golf", but this was for me the pick of the three.
