1927: Henry Cotton (1907 - 1987), who won the British Open three times, at St Andrews in Fife. Cotton, known as 'the Maestro', demanded better treatment for golfing professionals and wrote on the subject in newspaper columns and magazines which helped raise awareness and tuition fees. The Royal and Ancient golf club at St Andrews was founded in 1754 and recognised as the Governing Authority on the rules of the game in 1897. There are now more than 100 countries and associations affiliated to the famous club. (Photo by Kirby/Topical Press Agency/Getty Images) Code: 3400674
