Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joe Kirkwood, Jr. (born 30 May 1920) is a former professional golfer on the PGA Tour, and a motion picture actor. Kirkwood was born in Melbourne, Australia. His father Joe Kirkwood, Sr., who was a golf pro and who taught him to play golf, is acknowledged as having put Australian golf on the world map. In 1948, he and his father both made the cut at the U.S. Open, the first father and son to do so and a record tied only in 2004. When Joe Kirkwood, Jr. defeated Sam Snead to win the 1951 Blue Ribbon Open in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they became the third father-son winner in the history of the PGA Tour which in 2005 still has only six such winners.show more
