Drew (81), who’s a blind golfer of distinction, is the only one of the talented trio who’s still alive today but his pride in his late siblings is lovingly mirrored by the presence around the house of his brother Raymond’s evocative landscapes and brother Ian’s books alongside his golf cups.

There’s a tear in my eye when I think about Raymond and Ian and how astonishing it was that us three brothers who were born in humble surroundings managed to make an impact on our respective worlds,” says Drew.
