Sir Fred Goodwin bagged at St. Andrews!

Sir Fred Goodwin has had his application to join St Andrews Golf Club rejected.

The former chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland, who has been vilified for presiding over its spectacular downfall yet still accepting a £700,000-a-year pension, is a keen golfer and lives in a six-bedroom Edwardian villa in Edinburgh, 40 minutes from the elite Royal and Ancient club.

After his retirement, the man nicknamed Fred the Shred found a proposer and seconder to nominate him for membership.

He is said to be furious at his rejection, according to RBS staff. A senior member said: 'The word that Sir Fred has been blackballed by St Andrews has gone round the bank like wildfire.

Justice on the golf course!
