Consistency and concentration were the trademarks of golfer Ralph Guldahl. At the age of 18, he beat David "Spec" Goldman to win the Dallas City Amateur title and five months later he won the Motion Picture Industry Tournament at Los Angeles. He reached golf's pinnacle by winning two U.S. Open championships. In 1937 he shot a 281 to defeat Sam Snead at Oakland Hills Country Club in Birmingham, Michigan. Guldahl successfully defended his title in 1938 at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado. Guldahl was also a member of the 1937 United States Ryder Cup Team-the first to win on British soil. He collected the Western Open trophy three consecutive years (1936-1938). After finishing as the runner-up in 1937 and 1938, he won the Masters in 1939. Guldahl was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1968.
