Vintage Golf: U.S. Professional Hickory Championship

Competitors in the Hickory Championship

Temple Terrace G&CC outside Tampa hosted the inaugural U.S. Professional Hickory Golf Championship Feb. 21. A Tom Bendelow design, the course was the site of the $5,000 Florida Open in 1925 won by Leo Diegel and featuring some of the best golfers of the era. To celebrate that event, hickory golf buff Mike Stevens wanted a modern field to play Temple Terrace using vintage equipment. Here are the competitors prior to teeing off.
