  • Notes 
    • (Research):The Halford Hewitt is one of Britain's most competitive golf tournaments, contested between teams of 10 former pupils from the schools which make up the membership of the Public Schools Golfing Society. to Longhurst, who seldom got things wrong, Mellin and Beck had decided on the tournament details and were wondering which "bloody fool" they could inveigle into putting up a trophy when, quite by chance, Halford Hewitt walked into the room and was promptly pounced on. Hewitt's involvement might have been down to being in the wrong place at the right time, but that should not be construed as meaning he was an unwilling partner in this fledgling venture. Far from it. While never as good a golfer as the other two founders, this formidable old Carthusian adopted the enterprise with relish. Not just the benefactor of the trophy, he was to preside over every tournament until 1938, when ill health interrupted his service and obliged him to go on a cruise instead.
