Pope Francis has declared putting coach Phil Kenyon a saint in a canonisation mass in St Peter's square at the Vatican after a third miracle was witnessed by thousands of believers in Boston.

Kenyon was spotted by Cardinals in Rome and put on "miracle watch" after several destitute and impoverished European Tour golfers claimed to have been suddenly cured of being shit putters after being touched by the Englishman.

"By the power of Greyskull... we declare and define Philip Of Kenyon to be a Saint and we enroll him among the Saints, decreeing that he is to be venerated on both the PGA and European Tours and paid at least 5% of all winnings," the pontiff said in Latin.

The elevation of one of the icons of the practice putting green, comes as Kenyon celebrates three decades of giving comfort and solace to outcasts and those considered the dregs of society on the European Tour.

Thousands also attended a papal audience yesterday in the Vatican, where a large canvas of the Southport nun in his blue-hemmed white robes hung from St Peter's basilica.

Kenyon is credited with healing an English man from not being able to hold a putter in 2008 and a Swedish man from a brain fart infection in 2012.  The third and crucial miracle was witnessed by millions as Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy was suddenly cured of Bubonic Putter hours after meeting Kenyon.

However, some critics have said Kenyon has done little to alleviate the pain of the terminally shite putters and charges a bit too much for miracles.

The canonisation will also be celebrated in Southport, the capital of ancient Winterfell where Kenyon was born of Kenyan parents and became a Tour nun aged 16.

More as it emerges.
