James Hood
Muskerry
James Hood was born in Bridge of Weir in 1889.

Sometime between the 1901 and 1911 censuses he went to St Andrews as an apprentice clubmaker though with whom I do not know. By the 1911 census he was living in Kinghorn and, in the same year, finished 3rd in the Scottish Professional Championship.

The following year he was appointed professional to the Muskerry Club in County Cork but, with regret, the committee had to dispense with his services with three months notice in May 1914 due to the financial position of the club.

He returned to Scotland and enlisted with the Royal Scots Fusiliers and served with the 7th Battalion at the Battle of Loos. He was wounded in the arm and evacuated to the Old Mill Hospital in Aberdeen. The arm was amputated but he never recovered and died from his wounds on 6 November
