John Panton (1916-2009) was a professional golfer born in Pitlochry. When he participated in his first British Open at Carnoustie in 1937, his caddie was an old friend of Old Tom Morris. At the time of his death, he was the oldest surviving Ryder Cup player on either side of the Atlantic. The above photograph shows him later in his long career playing at Lundin Links around the early 1960s (perhaps at an Open Qualifier). Panton - in common with Arnold Palmer - had a drink named after him. A 'John Panton' is a ginger beer with a dash of lime cordial, while an 'Arnold Palmer' is an iced tea and lemonade.
