He succeeded Charles Higgs, who resigned the Kokomo job because of ill health. He came to the USA in 1930, his first American job being assistant pro at Lake Mahopac, N.J. Then he went to Detroit where he was assistant pro for five years at the Clinton Valley County Club. His tenure at the Kokomo club was interrupted for three years of duty with the U. S.
