Early life

Golf career

1910 was Sherlock's most successful year when, after a disappointing Open Championship, he then won the Olton Professional Tournament, the Portmarnock Professional Tournament, the Tooting Bec Cup and the News of the World Matchplay.

In 1920 Sherlock became the professional at Hunstanton Golf Club, where he remained until 1932 when he moved to Aldeburgh. He played for the British team against the United States in the 1921 Ryder Cup match at Gleneagles.

Sherlock continued playing at an advanced age. He attempted to qualify for the 1939 Open Championship. In 1958 he won his age group (age 70 and over) in the Teachers Senior Professional Tournament scoring 140 over 27 holes. He played in the event as late as 1960 when he was 85 years old.

Death and legacy

Sherlock died on 16 December 1966 at Hunstanton, England, aged 91. He is best remembered for having four top-10 finishes in the Open Championship, including a sixth place finish in 1904 when he had rounds of 83-71-78-77=309 and won £7 10s.
