    More Information:

    "Travers dominated golf in the decade before WWI with his stunning iron shots and expert putting. He won many tournaments because of his calm temperament, patience, and ability to make precise shots.He won the United States Amateur in 1907,1908, 1912, and 1913, and was runner-up in 1914. His victory in 1913 set a record for that tournament - not broken until Bobby Jones won it five times. He was among the first members of the Golf Hall of Fame established by the United States Golf Association. [Dictionary of American Biography].

    The Brae Burn Country Club , founded in 1897 in West Newton Massachusetts, has been the host of four major tournaments of the United States Golf Association.
