United States of America: Thos E. Wilson and Co., 1921. 343p, cloth Biography every one should have read. Rare signed cop, fine full autograph (9 to 10). Charles 'Chick' Evans was the first man to win the U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur in the same year. Using seven hickory-shafted clubs, Evans led the 1916 Open at Minikahda from start to finish, shooting a record score of 286 that would stand for 20 years. Ten weeks later, at Merion, he won the U.S. Amateur by beating Bob Gardner, the defending champion, in the final. The only other golfer in history to win these two tournaments in the same year was Bobby Jones, who did it in 1930, the year of his Grand Slam. Gene Sarazen said, 'In his day, Chick Evans was a finer iron-player than any of the professionals.' Henry Cotton called Evans 'undoubtedly the greatest amateur golfer of his generation" (World Golf Hall of Fame). Evans competed in a record 50 consecutive U.S. Amateurs and was selected to the Walker Cup team in 1922, 1924, and 1928. In 1960, he was given the Bob Jones Award, the highest honor given by the U.S. Golf Association. Good solid. Item #6712
