I am trying to find any descendants of two great uncles who were both golf professionals. Christopher Smith Day, born Musselburgh 1871 was golf professional at Malone Golf Club Belfast at the beginning of the 2Oth century. He had at least two children. His brother Walter Dunn Day was the first golf professional in South Africa.He was at Royal Cape Golf Club in the 1880s. He moved from there to Kimberley. He had a wife and family in Scotland. He returned there about 1908 and died soon afterwards.
