R H Henrit
Arbroath
Born in 1877 or 1878 (according to the census, I can find no birth certificate) Robert H Henrit was appointed professional at Arbroath in September 1908 having been previously supervisor of the ladies’ course in his home town of St Andrews.

The 1911 census shows him living with wife Margaret and three young children at Queen Street, Arbroath. He entered the 1912 Open at Muirfield but did not get past qualifying, He produced clubs using an ovoid hickory shaft but I have not established whether he held a patent for this design. He was still in Arbroath in 1914, having played in a foursome against Ben Sayers that year, but returned to St Andrews some time after the First World War with regular success in local competitions.

None of the namby-pamby name calling associated with disputes between modern golf professionals, he was in court in St Andrews in 1931 for assault having punched his fellow golf professional, Thomas Blair, in the face a couple of times after using ‘most filthy language’. He was bound over to keep the peace for 12 months.
