Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fred Corcoran (April 4, 1905 - June 23, 1977) was an American sports promoter, agent, administrator and amateur golfer, who had a diverse career in the world of golf, baseball, boxing, ice hockey and other sports. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1975, as one of the first honorees who had not had a career in competitive golf. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Corcoran started in golf as a nine-year-old caddy at Belmont Country Club, carrying bags for Francis Ouimet and Alexa Stirling. At the age of 12, he became the youngest caddie master in America, collecting five cents from every boy who carried a bag. As a young man he worked for the Massachusetts Golf Association, with Donald Ross at Pinehurst, and as the official scorer for the United States Golf Association. Among his innovations was the first tournament scoreboard that reflected birdies, pars and bogies in different colors; this method caught on immediately and is used around the world today.
