The Times: Quotes Peter Alliss, The Spoof Version

Fitting that The Times of London, once home to distinguished golf writers until recently letting go its excellent full-time scribe, quoted Peter Alliss in their (not posted online) story about Rory McIlroy's lawsuit.

The Alliss account is satirical.

Thanks to Alex Perry for Tweeting a photo of the gaffe and to reader for dbh for passing it along.


Naturally, Tweeter Alliss, a must follow for Twitterers, is enjoying his newfound clout:

Embarrassment. Wonder if they will post an apology/correction for being duped/dumb

Who are the great Times writers of the past? John Hopkins was there for a while, but really with the Sunday Times most of his career. Before that it was Mitchell Platts, nothing to write home about. Is their more distant past more distinguished? Bernard Darwin??

In US aren't many full-time golf writers left except for magazines. The NY Times still keeps one fairly busy as does USA Today but not sure of the Florida papers.

Geoff, you gotta love the one guy he follows.

Tweeter Alliss is hilarious!

Well, there was that Henry Longhurst fellow. Forty-five years at the Sunday Times (originally separate, now co-owned). Darwin was also the Sunday Times writer.

This imposter needs to be stopped. I doubt Alliss follows twitter, so how could he know that someone has taken his name? Libel suit coming?

Longhurst and Darwin I thought were pretty well known Times guys, but I guess not to Media Driven!

I wwrote a monthly piece on US golf for the Times because my ego demanded there be a nebulous link with Darwin. Had I known
Murdoch was going to buy the paper , as he has now bought the USGA I would have declined. The fee was $75 bY the way Peter
RYDE followed DArwin. hE WAS very good. Peter Alliss has written 3 autobiographies. He may read 1 of them.
