The Alfred Dunhill Links Gallery – Week Six
Our series of classic pictures by some of golf’s most acclaimed and imaginative photographers continues as they pick their own favourites from the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
Does this unique picture from Ian McIlgorm have a hint of ‘ET – the extra-terrestrial’ about it?
Ian says: “Professional Tommy Fleetwood and amateur partner Ogden Phipps always seem to have fun on course. Their signature greeting/celebration is a fingertip touch, rather than a fist bump.
“Watching Tommy practice swinging before starting his round on the 10th tee at Kingsbarns in 2018, I was aware of the strong shadow across the backing boards. Tommy, even in his hat, is so recognizable. When Ogden reached out, I caught the moment.
“Such a strong and positive pairing, they went on to win the Team Championship the following year.”
