    This video appears to be transposed, as it's highly unlikely that every golfer pictured would have been left handed. Also, the golfer at the end on the left is Gene Sarazen, whose hair is traditionally parted from right to left, not left to right as pictured. Sarazen won the 1932 Open Championship at Prince's Golf Club near Sandwich.
