Francis Ouimet is considered America’s first golf hero and one of the most important figures in the history of the game. His 1913 U.S. Open victory as an unknown amateur competitor changed golf forever. He was a six-time Massachusetts fAmateur champion as well as a Massachusetts Open champion, won the U.S. Amateur twice, and was a member of 12 Walker Cup teams. A Bob Jones Award recipient, Ouimet has a room named after him at both the USGA Museum and the Mass Golf Hall of Fame & Museum is only one of four golfers to have a U.S. Commemorative Stamp issued in his honor.
