His first round on Friday might not have gone exactly according to plan but the evening took a brighter turn for Ian Woosnam when he was inducted into the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame in Cardiff.

The 2006 European Ryder Cup Captain took his bow at a star-studded presentation dinner in the Mercure Holland House Hotel in the Welsh capital alongside two other greats from the world of Welsh golf – four time Ryder Cupper Dave Thomas and former Welsh ladies champion Vicki Thomas.

Woosnam was presented with the award to mark his induction by former Wales First Minister Rhodri Morgan and was welcomed into the Hall of Fame by two other Welsh sporting greats who are already in the Hall of Fame, Gareth Edwards and Tony Lewis.
