1930 Illinois PGA Runner-Up Championship William Marshall Memorial Medal Awarded to Jock Hutchinson


Outlined by ornate scalloped edging and composed of sterling silver, Illinois' PGA sector Championship proudly presented their own Jock Hutchison this crescent shaped runner-up medal named for the William Marshall Memorial. Indeed, Hutchison was a United States and specifically Illinois resident during the golden year of golf - 1930. The Fife, Scotland born golfer packed up his things and jumped the pond to become a naturalized citizen in 1920. The newly-turned American citizen soon made his presence felt, winning the PGA of America's championship in 1920 prior to returning to his original home and and being crowned 1921 Champion Golfer of the Year, hoisting the prized Claret Jug at The Old Course of St Andrews Golf Links. Hutchison, who would win the 1937 Senior PGA Championship at Augusta National would return to Augusta as the inaugural Masters Tournament Honorary Starter for ten years starting in 1963 with Fred McLeod. Few would predict Hutchison's impact on Illinois Golf, with his accomplishments inside the state boundaries reading as a list of career accomplishments standing alone itself. He was the 1920 Western Open winner at Olympia Fields (then considered a major), again triumphant at the tournament in 1923 then held in Tennessee. The 1920 winner and 1923 Illinois Open runner-up. Champion of the 1923, 1925 and 1926 Illinois PGA Championship and tournament runner-up to Al Espinosa in 1930 - with his medal from that tournament presented here.

The verso of this prize awarded to the Scot turned Illinoisan reads: "Illinois Professional Golfers Association - Runner-Up - 1930." A royal blue medallion reading "William Marshall Memorial" finishes this medal depicting a golf scene and detail throughout. William Marshall was honored as a longtime Onwentsia Club professional that passed away in 1922, the year prior to Hutchison's 1923 IPGA Championship that was played as a subset of the Illinois Open in which he was runner-up in. This medal's story rivals the impressive medal itself, with an unquestioned sizable impact that Jock Hutchison played in Illinois golf history.
