Record breaker Casera dies

Italian Aldo Casera, who last year set a European tour record unlikely ever to be equalled, has died.

Casera, winner of the Italian Open in 1948, made his 50th appearance in the European Masters in Switzerland last September at the age of 79.

He was attending this week's Italian Open in Turin, but fell ill and died in hospital.

Two years ago Casera equalled his age at the European Masters with an opening 78, then beat it by five the following day.
