John Henry Taylor


John Henry Taylor (March 19, 1871 Devon-February 10, 1963) was a English golfer and one of the pioneers of the modern game of golf. He was a member of the fabled Great Triumvirate of the sport in his day, along with Harry Vardon and James Braid, and he won The Open Championship five times. He was employed by the Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club from 1899 until his retirement in 1946.

Taylor was a co-founder and the first chairman of the British Professional Golfers' Association. Bernard Darwin wrote that Taylor "had turned a feckless company into a self-respecting and respected body of men".
