Born in Victoria, Australia, he was one of cricket’s greatest spin bowlers, taking more than 1,000 wickets in Test and One Day Internationals by the time he retired in January 2007, at the end of Australia’s 5-0 Ashes series victory over England. His total of 708 wickets was a world record until surpassed by Muttiah Muralitharan. He is now a TV cricket analyst. A member of Huntingdale and Metropolitan in Melbourne and Beaverbrook near London, this is his tenth appearance in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Says his greatest golfing moment was shooting two under par on the Old Course in 2013. Has established the Shane Warne Foundation, which raises funds for seriously ill and underprivileged children in Australia. Loves playing poker and tennis and watching Aussie Rules football.
