Episode 74: Walter Hagen
Part 9: Third Time’s the Charm
By the end of 1921 Walter Hagen’s mantle glittered with the trophies of every significant golfing championship in the world…save ONE. The (British) Open had thus far eluded him on two occasions. However, before Hagen could make his third attempt he needed to raise money for the trip. In today’s episode, Jamie and Charles explore the Haig’s long and winding road to the 1922 Open which intersects with the legendary stock trader, Jesse Livermore. Also introduced is Walter Hagen’s own story of why a golf course has 18 holes.
