Michael G. Cochrane

"George Lyon was the Tiger Woods of his time. It's time his story was told."

Michael Cochrane is a Toronto lawyer and author. He has published several bestselling books about law and was the host of a nationally televised live phone in show called “Strictly Legal”. Golf and golf history have become his passions. He has spent hundreds of hours researching the incredible story of Canadian golfing great George Seymour Lyon, winner of the 1904 Olympic Gold medal for golf. Amazed that Lyon’s story was being lost in the mists of time rather than being celebrated as the 2016 Olympics approach, he has made telling Lyon’s story his mission.

Michael is a great fan of Match Play ( 1904 Olympic style) and has won the 2007 Lookout Point Golf and Country Club Match Play, the 2010 Cedar Springs  Match Play Championship (18 and over) as well as the 2014  Cedar Springs Senior Match Play Championship (60 and over). He has three holes in one to his credit including an albatross
