Becoming the BBC’s chief golf correspondent in 2003, he has covered all four Major events numerous times as well as multiple Ryder Cups.

As Europe made a stunning comeback over the USA to clinch the tournament, Iain’s commentary was heard by millions around the world and has gone down in history.

Over the years he’s interviewed some of golf’s biggest names including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Rory McIlroy. Away from sport, he’s also interviewed stars like Tom Hanks, Billy Connolly and former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
