September 16, 1913 US Open Tuesday Qualifier

Sept 16, 1913  9:05 am Francis Ouimet learns that his planned on caddie, Jack Lowery, is going to be a no show. The message is delivered by his younger brother 10 year old Eddie Lowery who after a strong sales effort, the likes of which would carry him through out his life, ends up as Francis's caddie. 

Sept 16, 1913  9:10 am Francis Ouimet and his caddie take to the putting green for a few pre-round strokes. 

Sept 16, 1913 9:45 am On the tee from Brookline Massachusetts, The Massachusetts Amateur Champion Mister Francis Ouimet. Paired with, from Tacoma, Washington professional Long Jim Barnes future US Open Winner (1921). Jim Barnes holds a unique position in golf and perhaps in all of sport.

Sept 16, 1913 12:15 pm Francis Ouimet finishes the morning round with a 74 to take over first place with a one stroke lead on the great Harry Vardon. The gallery at The Country Club abuzz with this surprising news, though very few if any are confident he can hold this position.

Sept 16, 1913 1:00 pm Francis Ouimet and Long Jim Barnes take the tee to begin their afternoon qualifying round.

Sept 16, 1913 2:30 pm Former President Taft joins the gallery following Francis 

Sept 16, 1913 4:00 pm Francis Ouimet shoots a 78 in the afternoon round finishing second among the Tuesday qualifiers one stroke behind low Tuesday qualifier Harry Vardon. 


Sept 16, 1913 early evening Former President Taft congratulates Francis Ouimet and Harry Vardon on their superb rounds and then advises a friend to bet the field against Harry Vardon and Ted Ray.
