“A DREAM come true”: That is what playing a round of golf with Europe’s Ryder Cup winning captain José María Olazábal meant to Dewsbury amateur Rick Towler, writes Mark Berry.

Towler, from Thornhill Edge and a greens chairman at Dewsbury Golf Club, met the triumphant Olazábal as a reward for winning the Nespresso Trophy UK Challenge in September.

In partnership with his brother-in-law John Norrey, Towler, 56, won both the regional and national rounds of the four-ball betterball amateur pairs tournament and as a result, travelled to Spain to play a round of golf with the man who inspired Europe to their sensational fight-back victory at Medinah Country Club in September.
