Maurice Flitcroft, a dreamer and unrelenting optimist, managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship qualifying in 1976 and subsequently shot the worst round in Open history, becoming a folk hero in the process.

“It’s cheerful, it’s crowd-pleasing and you win at golf if you achieve the lowest, not the highest score, so I learned something too.” -Deborah Ross, The Spectator
