Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Robert "Charlie" Coe (October 26, 1923 - May 16, 2001) was an American golfer who is considered by many to be one of the greatest amateur golfers in history. A two-time U.S. Amateur winner, Coe never turned professional, instead choosing to spend time with his wife and family. Born in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Coe served as a pilot during World War II, and later attended the University of Oklahoma from 1946-48. He won the Big Seven Conference championship all three years. Coe won the U.S. Amateur in 1949, beating Rufus King 11 & 10 in the finals, and won it again in 1958 with a 5 & 4 victory over Tommy Aaron. He finished runner-up to Jack Nicklaus in the 1959 tournament. Coe won the Western Amateur in 1950, and made the finals of the British Amateur in 1951, losing to Dick Chapman. He won four Trans-Mississippi Amateurs (1947, 1949, 1952, and 1956).show more
