Sunday Times Teaser 2880 – Golfing Greats

by Graham Smithers

Published December 3 2017 (link)

Following the success of this summer’s programmes about cricketing greats, there is to be an equivalent series about golfers. On each of the next seven evenings a different media pundit will advocate the merits of two golfers.

The pundits are Coltart, Critchley, Harmon, Livingstone, Lee, Murray and Roe.

The fourteen golfers to be discussed are Chappell, Els, Faldo, Harrington, Hogan, Mcllroy, Moore, Nicklaus, Poulter, Reed, Singh, Snead, Stenson, and Woods.

Each evening, looking at the names of the pundit and the two golfers, then for any two out of the three names there are just two letters of the alphabet that occur (once or more) in both.

(a) Which golfers will Critchley advocate?

(b) Which golfers will Harmon advocate?

      Thank you for posting your code. I hope you don’t mind but I have changed your long last line to keep it within the display window without the need for left/right scrolling.
