Ah - barking up completely the wrong tree. So a US golfer probably in the 60s - Arnold Palmer?

No, the connection is not to do with how you play these sports.

Are they demonstration sports at the Tokyo Olympics? I seem to recall surfing being mentioned a few weeks ago

Close enough - they are actually included as official sports for the 2020 Olympics

Norman Cowans is the first one I remember - he was brilliant in an Ashes game in the early 80s that England won by 3 or 4 runs. I can remember I was at a house party and being so excited I stopped snogging the girl I was snogging for at least 10 seconds.

Was it Roland Butcher? I think he was around before Wilf Slack

Apologies, I've been away on holiday for a week or so.

Roland Butcher was indeed the first - he played 3 tests and 3 ODI's in 1980/81
Gladstone Small and Wilf Slack first played a Test in 1986, Cowans in 1982

The game I assume you refer to WR was in Melbourne in 1982 / 83 when England won by 3 runs after Jeff Thomson and Alan Border had taken the Australians close by adding 70 for the last wicket. Thomson then edged a delivery from IT Botham (who else!) to Chris Tavaré at slip who could only parry the ball and Geoff Miller, having turned around (so the story goes) to walk off as he assumed the ball was now going for 4 resulting in an Aussie win, caught the rebound. Cowans was indeed magnificent in that innings, taking 6/77.

What was her name?!

Ah - memories. Her name was Christine and at 18 she was the love of my life.

The 7th hole at the Satsuki golf course in Japan and the 3rd hole at the Gunsan Country Club in South Korea are the only holes on any of the worlds 10,000+ championship standard golf courses to feature what?
