Chick Evans.

He was born on 18th July 1890 at Indianapolis, Indiana. His family moved to Chicago when he was 8 years old when soon found the game of golf by being a caddie at the Edgewater Golf Club. He went on to become one of the finest players during the hickory golf era. He attracted great public attention when winning both the U.S. Amateur Open and The U.S. Open in 1916, a feat only the great Bobby Jones was to repeat.

As an amateur player he was not able to accept earnings from golf as he would then lose his amateur status. All monies received were re-invested in scholarships for your caddies. The idea came from his mother who told him that his earnings from golf should go back into golf. He said it was all “her dream, her idea”.

His wins included the Chicago Amateur Western Junior in 1907, The Western Amateur in 1908,12,14,15,20,21,22,23, French Amateur 1911, U.S. Amateur Open 1916 & 20, U.S. Open 1916 and the Kansas City Open in 1925.  He was also a member the winning Walker Cup teams in 1922, 24 & 28.  He was entered into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1975.

He was married to Esther for 40 years (d.1967), they had no children. Evans died on 6th November 1979 at the age of 89.
