Harry Fulford
Le Touquet (France)
Harry (or Thomas Henry to give him his Sunday name) Fulford certainly kept good company. Born in Devon in 1877, he began as a caddy at Westward Ho ! In heaven and served an apprenticeship with the great local clubmaker, Charles Gibson. He then spent time as a clubmaker, and later foreman, in the Cann & Taylor workshop of the great J H Taylor. After a spell at Bradford as professional, he went to Egypt as pro at Helouan. After serving, and being wounded by shrapnel, with the Niblick Brigade during WWI he saw France in a more pleasant light, serving as professional at the glitzy resort of Le Touquet where he had been hospitalised.

His lasting contribution to clubmaking was the invention of the sammy iron, a lofted cleek for chipping around the green or from light rough, a variation of the jigger. His sammies are from around 1905 and had rounded backs although this feature was dropped by later makers.
