Peter Alliss, who became the eccentric ''Voice of Golf'' on British television after a playing career in which he competed in eight Ryder Cups and was Europe's best golfer for two seasons, has died. ''Peter's death was unexpected but peaceful,'' the family said in a statement through the BBC, where he worked. Alliss won 23 tournaments worldwide in a professional career that ended in 1974 and was the Vardon Trophy winner – for the leading player on the British PGA, the forerunner to the European Tour – in 1964 and '66.
