Sir Sean Connery (25 August 1930 – 31 October 2020) was originally from Edinburgh, Scotland.
A legend on the screen with an amazing career lasting for decades, he was the first actor to play James Bond in 1962.
The English professional golfer Peter Alliss gave Connery golf lessons before the filming of the famous golf scene James Bond vs Goldfinger in 1964.
Jack Nicklaus said: "Sean loved the game of golf. He was a pretty darn good golfer and we played together several times. In May 1993, Sean and legendary race car driver Jackie Stewart helped me open our design of the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles in Scotland."
