An extensive collection of well-preserved artefacts is on display at the nearby Mary Rose Museum, built to display the reconstructed ship and its artefacts.
The Mary Rose was one of the largest ships in the English navy through more than three decades of intermittent war and was one of the earliest examples of a purpose-built sailing warship.
It was raised in 1982 by the Mary Rose Trust, in one of the most complex and expensive projects in the history of maritime archaeology.
The surviving section of the ship and thousands of recovered artefacts are of immeasurable value as a Tudor-era time capsule.
Harmer, who plays at Freshwater Bay and Shanklin and Sandown golf clubs, set Hampshire up perfectly by causing an upset in the day’s first match.

While leading the attack on the galleys of a French invasion fleet, she sank in the Solent, the straits north of the Isle of Wight.
The wreck of the Mary Rose was rediscovered in 1971.
She was armed with new types of heavy guns that could fire through the recently invented gun-ports.
After being substantially rebuilt in 1536, she was also one of the earliest ships that could fire a broadside, although the line of battle tactics that employed it had not yet been developed.
Plans to provide a new two-storey cafe and holiday accommodation on the pier were originally unveiled in 2010 but the project was delayed because of planning issues, which included concerns over flooding.
