BBC have given Peter Alliss a one year rolling contract which means that he can name his own retirement date, and carry on broadcasting until his nineties should he so wish, He’s now unbelievably 87 though he sounds much younger even if his opinions are firmly rooted in the 1930s. My Dad used to say “that man talks just like your Granny”, and he became Granny Alliss ever more. Who else could get away with telling people exactly what many are thinking as in this clip above. That said, his co commentators need more focus. One of them actually observed a child being given a golf ball and called the golfer who did so “Ricky McIlroy”. No excuse for that, he wasn’t wearing orange.
