1920 Western Golf Association Open Championship Gold Medal Won by Jock Hutchison


Widely considered a Major Championship at this time, the 1920 Western Open was contested at the prestigious Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois August 4-5 nearly 101 years ago. This museum quality 14-karat gold winner's medal was awarded to champion Jock Hutchison and carries the prestigious Western Golf Association Open Championship crest in detailed relief on the front side, an organization that spared no expense during production of their first place prize. By the narrowest of margins, Hutchison's 3-under par performance totaling 296 strokes topped the defending champion Jim Barnes and Scots Clarence Hackney and Harry Hampton. It would be the first of two Western Open titles for Jock Hutchison, playing victor again in 1923 and this time at Colonial Country Club in Cordova, Tennessee.14k gold, as marked on the verso bottom. Reverse engraving reads: '1920 - Won By - Jock Hutchison - Aug. 4 & 5. 1 1/4" diameter.'
