On This Day in Golf History
June 19, 1954 - Ed Furgol won his only major title at the ‘54 U.S. Open held at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey. Furgol made an amazing recovery for par on the final hole, hitting his second shot from the trees to a fairway on Baltrusol’s other course and then managing a par 5 from there. - Courtesy of Randy Walker, Author of On This Day in Golf History, available via Amazon.com and by clicking HERE
