Paramor rules

john paramor, chief referee of the European Tour, is perhaps surprisingly able to continue a run of officiating at the Open that goes back to Birkdale in 1991.

Paramor injured a knee during last week's Scottish Open and went to see a specialist on Tuesday, when keyhole surgery was carried out immediately. So successful was the procedure, he was able to travel to Sandwich, where he is carrying out his duties primarily from a buggy.
