Charles Harold Ward (16 September 1911 – August 2001) was a prominent English golfer of the 1940s, winner of the British Order of Merit in both 1948 and 1949, and twice finishing third in The Open Championship, in 1948 and 1951. He would add his name, at some stage, to the roll of honour of almost every leading event in British professional golf, with the exception of the Open. Ward represented Great Britain on three occasions in the Ryder Cup, in 1947, 1949 and 1951, although he only enjoyed one victory in his six matches, losing twice to Sam Snead and once to Ben Hogan.

  • Charles Harold Ward (16 September 1911 – August 2001) was a prominent English golfer of the 1940s, winner of the British Order of Merit in both 1948 and 1949, and twice finishing third in The Open Championship, in 1948 and 1951. He would add his name, at some stage, to the roll of honour of almost every leading event in British professional golf, with the exception of the Open. Ward was born in Birmingham, England. Like many players his age, Ward's best years were denied to him by World War II, so it was fitting that he should win the very first professional event played after VE Day, the Daily Mail Victory Tournament at St Andrews. After his victory he returned late to his posting at an RAF base and as a punishment, was confined to barracks. Ward would win three events in 1948 (one of them in a tie), and gained more recognition for his 1949 season, his three wins that year including the rich Spalding and North British-Harrogate Tournaments and then the British Masters, also played that year at St Andrews. Further victories followed in 1950 (the Daily Mail Tournament at Walton Heath, which Ward won in a playoff against Bobby Locke and Australian Ossie Pickworth) and 1951 (the Dunlop Tournament and the Lotus Tournament) before Ward's final victory on the British circuit in 1956, the British PGA Championship at Maesdu. Ward represented Great Britain on three occasions in the Ryder Cup, in 1947, 1949 and 1951, although he only enjoyed one victory in his six matches, losing twice to Sam Snead and once to Ben Hogan. Ward died after a short illness in August 2001, a month short of his 90th birthday.
  • Charlie H. Ward (Birmingham, 16 september 1911 - augustus 2001) was een Engelse golfer. Hij won de Britse Order of Merit in 1948 en 1949. In 1933 was Ward op de Moseley Club in Birmingham op de maandag na het Brits Open om een match te spelen met Bert Gadd tegen de beroemde Amerikanen Walter Hagen en Denny Shute, die net het Open gewonnen had. Walter Hagen speelde vaak demonstratiewedstrijden (ongeveer 1500 in 11 jaar). Er waren 300 toeschouwers. Voor de wedstrijd werd een lunch gegeven waarbij de Amerikaanse spelers aan de hoofdtafel zaten en hun Britse tegenstanders aan een andere tafel geplaatst werden. Walter was het hier niet mee eens en liet zijn bord aan de tafel van de Britten zetten. Wards carrière werd vertraagd door het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Hij diende bij de RAF. Hij won het allereerste toernooi na de bevrijding, het Daily Mail Victory Tournament op St Andrews Links. Hij was toen nog niet gedemobiliseerd en kwam te laat terug op de RAF-barakken. Daarna speelde hij onder meer negentien keer in het Brits Open en eindigde in de periode 1946-1951 vijf keer in de top 6. In 1965 speelde hij dit toernooi voor de laatste keer. In 1950 won hij het Daily Mail Tournament op Walton Heath, nadat hij in de play-off Bobby Locke en Ossie Pickworth had verslagen. Hij werd drie keer opgenomen in het Britse team van de Ryder Cup. In 1947 verloor hij de foursome en de singles van E. Oliver, in 1949 verloor hij de foursome van Jimmy Demaret en C. Heafner en de single van Sam Snead en in 1951 won hij de foursome van E. Oliver en H. Ransom en verloor hij de singles van Ben Hogan.
