Monday Madness

Thanks to librarian ingenuity not only did we, sort of, connect Margaret Thatcher to South Carolina but in a moment of crowning glory we connected Thatcher, the Masters and South Carolina.

Ok, here it goes.

Following his Masters win in 1989 Nick Faldo played the Heritage Tournament in South Carolina. Margaret Thatcher, then Prime Minister, declared that “Britain’s golfers rule the world” since British golfers had won back-to-back Masters. That's it!

Any chance you remember which British golfer won the 1988 Master's? No googling!
