James M. Barnes

Jim Barnes, an Englishman representing the Pelham (N.Y.) Country Club, won the 25th Championship with remarkable ease over a strong, international field in July, 1921, at the Columbia Country Club, Chevy Chase, Md. His 69-75-73-72-289, nine over par, enabled him to lead after every round and win by nine strokes over Walter Hagen and Fred McLeod. Bob Jones tied for fifth at 303. Warren G. Harding, President of the United States, presented the trophy to Barnes.
