Abstract:
John \"Brooks\" Dendy was a legendary golfer from Asheville during the 1930s. He wasn't allowed to play in the PGA because of a strict whites only policy, yet he left his mark on the sport. The title refers to an exhibition match in 1933. He arrived late and did not have time to warm up, so he just teed off. He hit a hole in one on the first, and then made three consecutive birdies, which gave him a six under par 1-2-3-4 start. He ended with a round of 59, which is still considered one of the sport's greatest feats.
