F H Taylor
Frederick H Taylor was an assistant to Harry Vardon at South Herts and was appointed professional at Sickleholm in Bamford where he began working in February 1914.
His time here was short as he was soon in the York and Lancaster Regiment fighting at the front. It was reported in July 1916 that he had been badly wounded in both arms by shrapnel.
This might have put paid to any further golfing career but he was back after the war as professional at Saunton in the West Country in 1923. He became professional at Oxford University after this (Jackson’s Register has him beginning in 1923, my first reference to him there is in 1926).
Taylor was elected chairman of the PGA in July 1938.
He was still at Oxford University on the eve of the Second World War, in the draw for the PGA Midlands Qualifier in August 1939.
