Did you know?

Starting out in the game as a caddie, Farrell turned professional in 1922. He went on to win 22 times on the US PGA circuit, which included the 1928 U.S. Open Championship at Olympia Fields CC in Chicago. His U.S. Open title was only secured after playing the 72 regulation holes and then a 36-hole playoff against legendary amateur Bobby Jones (the 1923 and 1926 U.S. Open champion). Farrell emerged the victor by just one shot, while Jones went on to win this prized event the following year, and again the year after that.
