Today we remember @CGHF honoured member Al Balding who was born on this day in 1924.
Al Balding’s victory at the 1955 Mayfair Open was a first for Canada - no other Canadian had won a PGA Tour event in the United States. He also finished sixth on the PGA Tour money list in 1957, the highest of any Canadian. The Toronto native won both the CPGA Championship and CPGA Match Play Championship four times and represented Canada at the 1968 World Cup where he was the individual low-scorer and teamed with George Knudson to win the prestigious team event. However, early in his career, Al was plagued with muscular problems and had to curtail his golfing activities. Allan George Balding's Record:
