Horace Gordon Hutchinson
About the Author:
Horace Gordon Hutchinson began his golfing career at an early age playing on Royal North Devon. By the age of sixteen, he won the club medal championship and, by club rules, became its Captain. At the school he made his mark immediately playing number one on the golf team and leading them to victory over arch rival, Cambridge. Hutchinson’s finest golf efforts occurred in the British Amateur, which he won in 1886 and 1887. He became the first player to successfully defend the championship when he beat the great John Ball on Ball’s home course. He died in 1932.
