You’re only as good as your hands Henry Cotton

Now this is a nostalgic film. I remember reading about Sir Henry Cotton in his later post tournament years setting up this training school for young tour professionals in Penina Portugal. He would make them beat a tyre repeatedly to strengthen their hands, He also had a donkey, whose name I cant remember, who was his caddie, carrying his clubs on panniers either side of his saddle. The donkey and a very young Howard Clark are in this film, which has pictures of Henry Cotton in his prime with his formidable wife Toots.
