Surfaced Photo Suggests Dawson Missed Calling As Bond Villain

Or at the very least, based on this AP photo from Wednesday's R&A Press Conference at the Open Championship, a bit role in a Monty Python film.

The photo accompanies Golfweek's Alex Miceli's account of R&A Chief Inspector Executive Peter Dawson's blame-the-media press conference addressing the Muirfield and R&A membership issues.

No, Ms. Burke. I don't expect you to talk, I expect you to die. Or, at least, I hope you just shut up and go away.

I do blame the media. Where are the potential female members crying foul about this? This was a nonsense issue at Augusta and its a nonsense issue now.

@The O: geez, give us a fair chance!

He is Austin Powers stupid. What a pathetic performance.
When does the golf start, I am so tired of membership BS.
just pick one upper crusty old money dame to join your club and the issue is moot. Geez old white guys are so stupid sometimes.

Can you Liberal Latte Sippers let this issue go please? The Open is a MEN'S championship. Holding it at an all-male club has no bearing on promoting the game of golf insofar as women participating. They can go and play Muirfield if they so aspire, end of goddamn story. So they can't join. Boo-hoo. 99% of golfers can't either.
Clearly I'm not up on my Bond villains. None of these quotes are familiar to me.
