in an era when this was more difficult than in modern times and also when under
pressure, and prevailed big time. In his first season as coach Derek Turner had
delivered. Ironically, in the early 1960s he captained Wakefield at Wembley and

But Kennedy relished the challenge, the sheer joy of political combat, and once
again his instincts had been good, for when he finished his remarks Johnson was

In the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach, Johnson had led by three strokes as he
headed into the final round, but endured a horrendous start — which included a
