“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Harry Vardon (English Athlete)
Harry Vardon was an English golfer and member of the fabled Great Triumvirate of the sport in his day, along with John Henry Taylor and James Braid.
Harry Vardon was born in Grouville, Jersey, Channel Islands. As a child growing up on the island of Jersey, Harry Vardon did not play much golf. Inspired by his older brother, Tom, he eventually took up the game in his teens and by age 20 he was so good that he turned professional. Vardon was the first professional golfer to play in knickers -- the "proper" Englishman dressed in an uncomfortable shirt and tie with a buttoned jacket. Nonetheless, within a few years he became golf's first superstar.
