1914


Walter Hagen

The homebreds now popped up like spring flowers. A Country Club of Rochester, N. Y. professional named Walter Hagen, who, in his first appearance had finished fourth at Brookline, came on to win in August at the Midlothian Country Club.

He led every round and equaled George Sargent's mark with 68-74-75-73-290, two over par, yet he had only a stroke over a homebred amateur, Charles Evans, Jr. Evans needed a 2 to tie on the last hole, and his pitch hit the cup and bounced out. As Hagen came onto the scene, McDermott faded off; it was his last Championship.
