Feeling a little worse for wear after the weekend? Forget the usual remedies of a big fry up or a hot bath – it’s the “soothing” voice of Peter Alliss that will make everything okay, according to Twitter.
Alliss has been commentating on the golf course for more than 50 years, and this year at the Masters he has won over fans yet again with his classic quotes and dulcet tones.
Some viewers have said they could listen to the BBC commentator’s voice “all day” while others have even suggested they want Alliss to commentate on their whole life.
I’ve just been hit by it!!! Once a year, every year when it happens it makes me smile and very happy…. and that is the soothing tones of Peter Alliss on @BBCSport at @TheMasters. One of my favourite weekends of the year for relaxing viewing.

I sit with a gin and tonic in my hand. The only sounds I hear are the sounds of birds singing in the spring twilight, the knowledgeable patrons at Augusta applauding, and the velvet voice of the incomparable Peter Alliss. A state of the deepest, deepest relaxation. #TheMasters

“Oh look at Rory, the lone figure in the Azalea’s ????. Where’s Titchmarsh when you need him?” Oh Peter Alliss please never ever retire #TheMasters

Peter Alliss is an absolute pleasure to listen to right up there with Richie Benaud, Barry Davies, Peter O'Sullivan, Bill McLaren and Nigel Johnson
