Ernest Foord
Berrow
Born in Berrow in 1884 and pro at the local club, Burnham and Berrow, 1900-1916, taking over from his father Walter Foord, who had been the pro since 1894. As you can see, he became professional at the tender age of 16 and in 1913 he beat the former professional at Berrow, a certain J H Taylor, in an exhibition match over 36 holes with skills which impressed Taylor greatly.

In 1902 he was up in St Andrews for a period of months ‘for the purpose of learning the intricate art of clubmaking’.

According to the club he emigrated to the USA during the First World War but ‘did not respond to letters’. I would be very interested to hear about his career in the USA.
