Instructions were that he be referred to only as “Your supreme majesty”. And he wasn’t to be touched under any circumstances. So, you could imagine the consternation when the leading local caddie wrapped his arms around the esteemed guest, addressed him as “King” and then saluted him with high-fives.

This is how Jim O’Brien recalls a visit by the King of Malaysia to Old Head Links in Kinsale. It is a treasured memory on his retirement after almost 25 years as general manager of a stretch widely regarded as the most spectacular in world golf.
