James Braid won a record five Open Golf Championships between 1901 and 1910. Braid worked as a joiner in St Andrews. He moved to England in 1893 to become a club maker. Braid was a keen golfer and turned professional in 1896.
He became one of the founders of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and later a president. He was also a distinguished course designer, gaining a reputation for creating well laid out courses.
Braid, with Harry Vardon and JH Taylor, were known as the ‘Great Triumvirate’ – three players who dominated the sport of golf before the First World War (1914 – 1918).
