Memorial To St Andrews Golfer And Triple Open Winner Jamie Anderson

EDM number 1533 in 2017-19, proposed by Stephen Gethins on 17/07/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Sports.

That this House congratulates author and golf historian Roger McStravick on his endeavours to ensure a fitting memorial to St Andrews golfer and clubmaker Jamie Anderson, who won The Open three times in a row with victories at Musselburgh in 1877, Prestwick Golf Club in 1878 and St Andrews in 1879, with the erection of a headstone at his unmarked grave in the grounds of St Andrews Cathedral 113 years after his death in the poorhouse at the age of 63; recognises the enormous contribution of Anderson and his contemporaries from St Andrews, including Tom Morris, to the sport of golf; and notes the enormous contribution of Roger McStravick in raising funds and awareness that Jamie Anderson, a father of 11 and son of Auld Daw Anderson, should be suitably remembered for his success with a headstone accessible to visitors to St Andrews, alongside those of other golfing greats, including Bob Martin, Sandy Herd and both Young Tommy and Old Tom Morris.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
