He also won the Austrian Open in Vienna where he spirited away. thousands of Jews from the Nazis. Was Enstein's interpreter at one point. Wrote the first Book on Donald Ross of Pinehurst and Dornoch plus another of his Personal Memories of Golf in Royal Dornoch. Tom Watson was so impressed with his knowledge and understanding of the game of golf that he asked for permission to write a foreword in a reprint of one of the books and actually sent payment towards the reprint. Many thanks for the information. Administrator.
