Gordon Sherry is best known for winning the Amateur Championship in

 1995, and playing in The Open and the US Masters. He turned professional in

 1996 and recently resumed his playing career alongside a busy schedule of

 coaching and corporate golf commitments.

Born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, on  he attended Stirling University and

 graduated with a degree in Biochemistry. During this formative period his

 golfing skills were honed and developed under the guidance of his coach

 and mentor, Bob Torrance.

Gordon’s early golf career went from strength to strength, and he reached

 the final of the Amateur Championship in 1994. The same year he

 represented Great Britain and Ireland in the St Andrews Trophy and the

 Eisenhower Trophy. His famous victory in the Amateur Championship the

 following year marked a sustained period of success.

He finished 4th in the 1995 Scottish Open at Carnoustie and then had a

 whirlwind week at St Andrews during the Open where he played with

 Watson, Norman, Nicklaus, Singh, Mickelson and Calcavecchia. The

 moment everyone remembers was when Gordon had a hole-in-one whilst

 playing with Watson and Nicklaus.

Also in 1995, Gordon played in the victorious Walker Cup team at Royal

 Porthcawl opposite a young Tiger Woods. Contrary to popular belief,

 Gordon played against Notah Begay III and Chris Riley in the singles

 matches and not Tiger. After participating in the 1996 US Masters in Augusta,

 Georgia, he turned professional and competed on tour until 2004,

 experiencing a rollercoaster ride of results.

Now a fully qualified PGA professional, he runs his own business,

 GordonSherryGolf, as well as continuing to play professionally on the Tartan

 Tour. GordonSherryGolf specialises in corporate golf activities as well as the

 elite mentoring of aspiring youngsters.

Gordon is a member of several prestigious golf clubs including Loch

Lomond and Kilmarnock Barassie in Scotland, and Augusta in the US. At 6ft

 8in tall, Gordon Sherry holds the record for being the tallest man ever to

 play in the US Masters.
