Former Ryder Cup Captain and European Tour golfing legend

About

Sturdy, stocky and a bulldog of a golfer - that is, and always will be, Bernard Gallacher. This battle-hardened player from Bathgate in Scotland was the original young wonder of the PGA European tour, winning the PGA Championship just two years after turning professional in 1967. Thirteen more titles followed in between the demands of Bernard's other job as the club professional at Wentworth Club.

Bernard Gallacher played in every Ryder Cup from 1969-83. In the late '80's he helped Tony Jacklin before taking over the captaincy in 1991. Unlucky in his first year, Bernard won the Cup as Captain on his third attempt. His calm and collected leadership was vital to the European team's stunning victory at Oak Hill in New York State.

Following a quarter of a century as Club Professional, Bernard Gallacher left Wentworth at the end of 1996. In 1997, he spent more time with his family and played more golf. Bernard also commentated on the Ryder Cup for Sky and worked with various blue chip companies, particularly on their corporate entertainment where - following his time at Wentworth - he is regarded as a 'golf day specialist'.

Bernard turned fifty in 1999 and has played on the European Seniors Tour ever since where he is perhaps the biggest 'name'. Following several consistent years, Bernard finally won in July 2002 at the Mobile Cup held at Stoke Poges. Other titles cannot be far away for the talented Scot.

Bernard Gallacher is an ambassador in Seniors Golf for Callaway. He plays "Hawk Eye" woods as well as the X12 Irons. Bernard also launched his own golf academy at Selfridges in April 2002.

Away from the golf course, Bernard Gallacher presents highly successful corporate golf days and his Ryder Cup speech is highly regarded as an informative insight into the world's biggest golf event.

Bernard Gallacher also spends time keeping fit, walking the dog, reading biographies and supporting several charities.

Testimonials

Thank you for helping to make our Specialties golf day at Wentworth such a success.

Nikolaj Beck, Head Specialties, Managing Director, Swiss Re

Bernard was fantastic! His stories about Ryder Cups were amazing...there aren't many people who can tell tales of beating Jack Nicklaus, but Bernard does it with style! Our guests loved every minute of it.
