Cyril Walker

Cyril Walker, an Englishman almost as little as Fred McLeod, won at the Oakland Hills Country Club in June. Representing the Englewood (N.J.) Golf Club, he scored a deliberate 74-74-74-75-297, nine over par. Jones, who had finished earlier with a birdie 4 against the wind on the long finishing hole for 300, led until Walker completed his round. Jones finished second.

The first elements of sectional qualifying were introduced: eastern and western elimination rounds were held in May at Worcester, Mass., and Oak Park, Ill., and the low 40 and ties at each place qualified for the Championship proper. Use of the steel-shafted putter was permitted for the first time.
