51-time amateur winner Stranahan dies at 90

Frank Stranahan, a winner of 51 amateur titles and six PGA Tour events, died Monday in Florida at age 90. Stranahan was a member of three victorious U.S. Walker Cup squads and won multiple British Amateurs. He won the World Amateur and All-American Amateur six times each. Stranahan won the 1958 Los Angeles Open and tied for second with Byron Nelson at the 1947 Masters. He also was T-2 at the 1947 Open Championship. His best finish in the U.S. Open was a tie for 10th, in 1958. During the latter part of his career – he retired from competitive golf in 1964 – he became a top-ranked powerlifter. After retirement, he settled into long-distance running and competed in more than 100 marathons.
