Chick Evans

Chick Evans (July 18, 1890-Nov. 6, 1979) was a leading amateur golfer of the 1910s and 1920s considered second only to Bobby Jones in his era. Evans was the first amateur to win the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur in one year, a feat he achieved in 1916. Evans went on to win the U.S. Amateur in 1920, while finishing runner-up three times. Selected to the Walker Cup team in 1922, 1924, and 1928, Evans competed in a record 50 consecutive U.S. Amateurs in his long career.
