Playing Career

Huish (pronounced "hush") has been the club professional and course manager at North Berwick West Links for over 30 years. After turning pro in 1959 he was known as a competent tournament player until 1975 when, after qualifying for The Open Championship in a seven-way playoff, he shot rounds of 67 and 69 to lead Tom Watson, Peter Oosterhuis and Bernard Gallacher by two strokes, with Jack Nicklaus and others even further behind. Although Huish fell away over the weekend and ultimately finished 13 shots off the pace, the achievement brought him into the public eye. In the same year he also won the British Professional Club Championship and while he never won an elite tournament he won many lower-ranked competitions, particularly on the Tartan Tour.
