On December 22, 2014, the USGA will celebrate its 120th anniversary as the national governing body for golf in the United States, its territories and Mexico. A lot of history has been made in the first 120 years and the Association continues to evolve in exciting ways. In that celebratory spirit, we are revisiting USGA milestones in a four-part series divided into 30-year segments. The first part reviews the years from 1894 to 1924.
In 1894, Newport (R.I.) Golf Club and St. Andrew’s Golf Club in Yonkers, N.Y., hosted amateur competitions, with both labeling theirs as the national championship. William G. Lawrence won the event at Newport, while Laurence G. Stoddard claimed the title at St. Andrew’s. Macdonald was the runner-up in both.
Convinced that neither club held the authority to conduct a true national championship, Macdonald called for the creation of a governing body to oversee a universally recognized amateur championship and create a written set of rules.
