The Galway native and Irish golf legend is best known for his amazing two-iron approach shot to the 18th hole at the Belfry before sinking the birdie putt that helped Europe win the Ryder Cup in 1989.

Over the course of his career he won four times on the European Tour, played in two Ryder Cups and secured two British Open Senior titles. He was the nephew of another titan of Irish golf Christy O’Connor Senior.

After turning professional in 1967 he went on to play in over 20 majors finishing in a tie for third at the 1985 Open Championship, having led the tournament early on with an opening round six-under at Royal St George’s.

His back-to back Seniors British Open titles were won in 1999 and 2000, while he also represented Ireland in several World Cups and Dunhill Cups.

It is believed his death occurred during a holiday in Tenerife. He was 67.

Christy Junior is survived by his wife Ann, daughter Ann and son Nigel. Sadly, his other son Darren died in a tragic road accident in 1998 aged just 17.
