Pictures at an Exhibition (12-01-2013)
Photos from 1968
This photograph of an exhibition match between two Welsh Golfing legends, was sent to the club by
Mr Aled Warren-Rees of Criccieth. Aled, who’s father originally lived in Nebo Cottage, Llanbadarn Fawr,
took several photos of the Dai Rees and Dave Thomas ‘match’ back in 1968.
Thank you Aled for sending us the photos. The full collection is available by clicking ‘Flickr’ on our home page.
PS. Billy (who caddied for Dai Rees that day), and Wyn can recall that there were four players that day. The third member of the group was Bernard Hunt, another Ryder Cup player who also had a distinguished career. There is a photo of him that day in the clubhouse.
The final member who was due to play that day was non other than Peter Allis, the ‘Voice of British Golf’. Billy & Wyn cannot recall why he was unable to play but he was substituted by the Club Professional at the time, John Lloyd, who played a ‘blinder’
