Past NALG Champions
"Ben Richter, an active left-handed professional from the Triple A Golf Club (now called Glen Echo Country Club) in St. Louis, Missouri staged a tournament at the White Sulphur Springs in West Virginia. Richter was the winner. Richter also won the 1935 tournament that was played in Cleveland, Ohio. While neither the 1934 or 1935 Richter events were judged successful, they nevertheless encouraged Ben and his Missouri amateurs to pursue the notion of establishing a national organization."
