July 21, 2022: Annual Watts Gunn Memorial Golf Tournament
The Watts Gunn Memorial Golf Tournament honors Watts Gunn, Omega 1928, known as “The Southern Hurricane.” Gunn made golfing history in 1925 in the U.S. Amateur, seeing the world record for international championship golf by winning 15 straight holes in the first round of the 36-hole match. In that tournament, he went to the finals against friend and rival Bobby Jones, making the only time two players from the same city ever met for the U.S. Amateur crown. In 192 and 1928, he played on the Walker Cup teams with Bobby ones, defeating the British team both years. He played many benefit tournaments including several exhibitions with Bobby Jones in 1927 and 1928. He won the Georgia State Amateur title in 1927 and 1928, and he has been inducted into the Georgia Tech Athletic Hall of Fame, Georgia Sports Hall of Game, Georgia Golf Hall of Fame and Southern Golf Association Hall of Fame.
