    You are correct.

    2nd shot on 18, 1 iron, took par on the hole, 1950 IIRC. Merion.

    Yeah, but I had to look it up. Seen it a million times, but never knew the siginificance of it.

    About how far would he have been hitting that one iron?

    My dad's favorite joke- What do you do if it starts to lightening on the course? Pull out your one iron and hold it in the air. Even God can't hit a one iron.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    IIRC he was hitting it 240. I'll see if I can find the yardage.

    6/10/1950.

    Ardmore, PA.

    US Open.

    225 Yards.

    He thought he had 200 to carry. Turns out he had 215 to carry. Made the 2 putt for par, his 36th hole of the day.
