Jock Hutchison’s 1918 Pittsburgh Field Club Red Cross 10k Gold Winners Medal


This historic and beautiful 10k gold winner’s medal features a deep red enamel Red Cross in the center, with 'Pittsburgh Field Club Patriotic Tournament' encircling it and laurels acting as the outer layer followed by “1918.” The medal has great eye appeal, including elegant engraving on the back of ‘Presented to Jack Hutchison' (his formal name) followed by the date ‘July 13th, 1918.’ Gold precious metal stamping ‘10k’ can be found below the inscription. The Pittsburgh Field Club, an Alexander H. Findlay design, is a renowned Pennsylvania course having hosted the 1937 PGA Championship, the qualifying rounds for the 1953 U.S. Open and the 1959 Western Open.

This 1918 Red Cross Patriotic Tournament featured Jock Hutchison teaming with Walter Hagen in front of a record 2,500 patrons. Hutchison and Hagen defeated reigning U.S. Amateur and Open Champion, Chick Evans, and his partner Warren Wood, former Western Open Champion, 3 and 2 in match play. This war time effort raised over $10,000 for the Red Cross - the largest amount ever raised to that point.

Jock, then connected to Glen View Club, of Chicago, and formerly of Allegheny Country Club, of Pittsburgh, would later win two major championships, the PGA Championship in 1920 and Open Championship at St Andrews in 1921. He also became the first honorary starter at the Masters with Fred McLeod in 1963. He is enshrined in the World Golf Hall of Fame. The medal measures 1 1/2" in diameter.
