Walter Hagen

Walter Charles Hagen was born in Rochester, New York in 1892 from German decent. His father was a millwright and blacksmith working for the Rochester railroad-car shops. He had 4 sisters.

He learnt how to play golf at the Country Club of Rochester where he was first of all a caddie from around 12 years of age earning money to help support his family. By the time he was 15 he was an expert golfer and was hired by the club to work in the pro shop giving lessons to their members. He turned professional in 1912 and made his debut in the Canadian Open taking 11th place. He also excelled at baseball as a pitcher and was offered a trial by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1914 but instead he went to play in a golf tournament and later that week won the US Open Championship which changed his life.

In 1918 he became the first club professional at the Oaklands Hills Country Club in Michigan. After one year he decided to become the first touring professional unaffiliated with a club and was the only professional to hold this status for number of years. Besides playing in major tournaments he also enjoyed playing in many exhibition matches and was handsomely paid for doing so. He was well known for being a classy dresser on and off the course wearing expensive tailored clothes often in bright colours.

He won many tournaments including the Open Championship four times, the US Open twice, 45 PGA Tour events and numerous other major events both in Europe and across the United States. He worked tirelessly to promote golf for the professional players and left a lasting legacy when he died in Traverse City, Michigan in 1969.
