Johnny Fallon was a Scottish professional golfer whose career spanned
the years either side of World War II. Although never a winner of a major
tournament of note, Fallon often contended with high finishes - he lost
the final of the 1954 British PGA Matchplay Championship, and was
perhaps most unlucky that he missed out on a potential Open
Championship that might have been played at St Andrews during the
war years. He had placed third there in 1939, and then second in 1955,
each time by just a handful of strokes.
Fallon played on the 1955 Ryder Cup team and in 1963 he was non
-playing captain of the Great Britain Ryder Cup team.
