Willie Goggin

Willie Goggin was an American professional golfer. His best finish in a major championship was runner-up at the 1933 PGA Championship, won by Gene Sarazen. In 1959, Goggin won the PGA Seniors' Championship, at Dunedin, with a score of 284, a shot ahead of the field. In June of that year faced British PGA Seniors Championship winner Arthur Lees in a match for what was billed as "the world professional senior golf title". To boost attendance, the final 18 holes of the match were scheduled to be played at night. In what the Associated Press called "the first twilight championship match on record," Goggin won the match 5&3. In December that year he won the National Senior Open at Eldorado Country Club in a 3-way playoff, retaining the title he had won in 1958; this list is incomplete 1935 Northern California Open 1936 Northern California Open 1944 Metropolitan PGA Championship 1958 National Senior Open 1959 PGA Seniors' Championship, World Senior Championship, National Senior Open NYF = tournament not yet founded NT = no tournament WD = withdrew CUT = missed the half-way cut R64, R32, R16, QF, SF = round in which player lost in PGA Championship match play "T" indicates a tie for a place Most consecutive cuts made – 11 Longest streak of top-10s – 2
