Apr 18

1922 U.S. Amateur Champion,Raised in St. Louis, Jess Sweetser was born the same year as Bob Jones and was widely considered a worthy challenger for the Georgian – winning both the U.S. and British Amateurs prior to Jones. Sweetser won the 1920 NCAA individual title while a student at Yale before bursting onto the national stage with a victory in the 1922 U.S. Amateur at Brookline. Sweetser nearly defended his crown, reaching the Amateur final again the following year, but lost to Max Marston on the 38th hole. While neither he, nor anyone else, could keep pace with Jones, Sweetser later won the 1926 British Amateur at Muirfield and played on six victorious Walker Cup teams.
