Former England Cricket captain Michael Vaughan who lead England to victory in the 2005 Ashes, is now retired from the sport and can now usually be found out on a golf course. We managed to catch up with him for eight holes.
- Who’s your sporting hero?
- If you could choose your perfect 4ball to play a round with – which three people would you want to play with and why?
Tiger Woods, Sir Alex Ferguson and Kylie Minogue, need I say more?
- Favourite place to tour as a cricketer?
My favourite place is Barbados so much so that I have invested in a property on a fantastic Golf Course out there.
- Which place did you most look forward to travelling to for cricket … because the golf courses were good!
After a day at a demanding test match getting out on to a nearby course is a great form of stress relief. My favourite place would be New Zealand as it has some fantastic courses such as Cape Kidnappers and the views aren’t too bad either.
- Who’s the best cricketer you have played golf with?
The fantastic Ricky Ponting
- If you were a pro golfer, who would you choose to caddie for you?
It would have to be My Pal – as a caddie must have some banter.
- If you had your time again and could choose either, would you be a cricketer or a golfer?
Neither… I would be a footballer for the mighty Sheffield Wednesday.
- Which is better… Caddieshack or Happy Gilmore?
Hands down, Happy Gilmore
