J. Clark Espie
J. Clark Espie, 60, of Indianapolis, Ind., the 1957 Senior
Amateur Champion, won again at the Memphis Country Club, Memphis,
Tenn. His margin in the final was 3 and 1 over J. Wolcott
Brown, of Manasquan, N.J.
In the five Senior Amateur Championships played thus far,
Espie had won twice, been runner-up once, and a semi-finalist
and qualifying medalist on a fourth occasion.
In 1959 he participated in the longest match to date in
the history of the competition-a 24-hole match which he won
in the second round against Larry E. Stage, of Lafayette,
Ind. Other semi-finalists were George Dawson, of Chicago,
and William E. Norvell, Jr., of Chattanooga.
Defending Champion Thomas C. Robbins, of Pinehurst, N.C.,
missed qualifying for the Championship flight of 32. There
was a record entry of 391. There was no handicap limit for
the first time.
