The two outstanding years in his all too brief career were 1937 and 1938 and certainly they were his busiest years.
In April 1947, Jimmy suffered an injury to his wrist was limited his ability to compete with the very best, though he remained a fine golfer.
Jimmy Bruen was only 17 when he played number one on the British and Irish teams that won the Walker Cup against America at St Andrew’s in 1938.
In that Walker Cup trials championship scored a remarkable 282 in four rounds of golf.
He was born in Belfast in 1920 but was reared in Cork.
In April 1947 he suffered a wrist injury that proved decisive in putting an end to his remarkable career.
Sadly, Jimmy Bruen died in 1972 at the age of 51.
