Ross (John) Simpson


Played 18*: Won 2, Lost 11, Drawn 5

* This is Rossís combined record. Ross played for the South at Ballyliffin and secured one win

Strengths & Weaknesses:

A lefty. Though this is an unnatural way to play golf, was given special dispensation to play by the organisers. Despite a slow start at the Machrie (no points), Ross returned one and a half points in Connemara despite a sore wrist(??). Another who is likely to drink his way to a poor performance, though this is harder to spot given normal level of play. A true 24 handicapper. Ross has two daughters and knows all the actions to 'Tragedy'. Now famous for always turning up (or not turning up) with an injury!

Opposing Captains View:

A difficult man to book flights for since Ross is not his first name and is not on his passport. At times Ross has filled the role of official photographer, not some that is necessarily appreciated by the touring party.
