Brian J. Bamford (born 18 December 1935) is an English professional golfer. He is remembered for winning the Schweppes PGA Close Championship in 1961 and taking the first prize of £1,000.[1] Because of the possibility of flooding at the Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club, a composite course was used, including seven consecutive holes of the Ladies' course, measuring just 5,755 yards. Each competitor played one of their opening two rounds at Richmond Golf Club.[2] Bamford's winning score of 266 (68-66-67-65) remains the lowest in the Championship's history. As a result of his win he was selected for the English Canada Cup team with Peter Alliss.[3]
