1901


Willie Anderson

Willie Anderson, the dour, business-like Scottish professional who had missed tying Lloyd by a stroke in 1897 came through as a representative of the Pittsfield (Mass.) Country Club at the Myopia Hunt Club in June.

His 84-83-83-81-331 created the first tie in the Championship, and he defeated Alex Smith in the playoff, 85 to 86. The 72-hole score remains the highest made by a winner, but more was to be heard from Anderson.
