James Kay
Seaton Carew
Born in Leith in 1855 and a founder member of the PGA, James Kay spent his entire professional career as professional to the Seaton Carew club, from 1886 to 1927. He had two top ten finishes in the Open Championship in the 1890s.

In addition to his golfing he was a successful professional boxing trainer notably of Dick Burge, British lightweight champion between 1891 and 1897.

He died in 1927, within a month of his retirement as a result of a poisoned thumb following an injury sustained while sawing wood.
