PICKWORTH, HORACE HENRY ALFRED ('OSSIE') (1918-1969), golfer, was born on 17
January 1918 at Manly, Sydney, fifth child of Sydney-born parents Harold Thomas
Pickworth, stonemason, and his wife Helena Doris Matilda, née Grey. Ossie left
school at 14 and, despite admonishment, caddied at Manly Golf Club until he was
appointed assistant-professional there in 1934. Fair haired, slim and strong, he
practised tirelessly, but did not win the State assistants' title until 1938.
