Alf Padgham (1 Open, 3 Ryder Cup's)
1906 - 1966
Padgham played for Great Britain in the Ryder Cup in 1933, 1935 and 1937, but he lost all six of his matches. He had an ungainly style, but was at times a brilliant putter. He lost what might have been some of his best competitive years due to World War II. He was club professional at Sundridge Park Golf Club in the south east suburbs of London for many years.
Padgham died in West Wickham, Greater London.
