[Quoted from the Times]:
“Gadd is of average height, but is so thick set that he looks short and almost Basque like --- He has a marked check for ‘readjustment’ at the top of his backswing --- he hits a very long ball”, Bernard Darwin, 1922

“Gadd’s natural configuration causes him, I suppose, to take the club up by one road and bring it down by another, but he brings it down on the ball very hard and very accurately and is beyond doubt a good golfer”, Bernard Darwin, 1924

[Quoted from Golf World in 100 Years of Golf at Powfoot, with thanks to the club]
“George Gadd, well known pro of the twenties, declared that he never played really good golf when not sucking humbugs”, George Houghton, 1975
