In 1987 (when Max Lines was a young successful businessman - hence the tie) the Sales Director of one of his raw material suppliers phoned Max to say he was visiting the factory on his way to a County Golf Dinner in Bristol.
The Sales Director was President of the Hertfordshire Golf Union and suggested to Max that he should have a camera in the office and that he might want to gather his golfing chums there as well. Max did all he was told.
When the Sales Director arrived he opened the boot of his car and extracted the Ryder Cup and the Claret Jug, which he was taking to the dinner for display. No pomp, no ceremony, which was how it was done before sport became controlled by the media.
The Sales Director was a friend of Nick Faldo who lived nearby. Faldo was the 1987 Open Champion and a member of the European Ryder Cup team which had retained the trophy that same year. This was the first time that both trophies had been displayed together in England - Sandy Lyle (Scotland) had won The Open in 1985 and Europe won the Ryder Cup that year too.
