Stewart Burns (born 1899) was a Scottish professional golfer. He was in the Great Britain team for the 1929 Ryder Cup but did not play in any matches. He was Scottish Professional Champion three times.


Early life

Burns was born in Stirling, Scotland in 1899.

Golf career

He won the Scottish Professional Championship in 1925, 1927 and 1928.

His best performance in The Open Championship was at Sandwich in 1928 where he was tied for 6th place after two rounds. A third round of 75 improved his position to a tie for 5th place but a final round of 83 dropped him to 16th place.

The team for the 1929 Ryder Cup was selected in January 1929. With his performance in the 1928 Open and his three wins in the Scottish Professional Championship Burns was chosen as one of the ten-man team. It was originally planned that, as in 1927, only eight players should be used by each team, the same players being used in the foursomes and singles. However, Hagan, the American captain, wished to use all 10 of his players. This was agreed to, although Duncan, the British captain, announced that he would only select eight as originally intended. Burns and Percy Alliss were left out of the British and did not play.

He spent most of his life in Scotland but was professional at Hendon Golf Club near London from 1929 to 1933.
