Walter Hagen Invitational

The 'Hagen' starts this week and our preparations began today.

Walter Hagen was one of three former Oakland Hills golf professionals to play on a Ryder Cup team: Hagen, Al Watrous and Mike Souchak. Hagen was the U.S. Captain in six Ryder Cup Matches and also competed in five of those matches.

Hagen came to Oakland Hills in 1918 from the Country Club of Rochester (NY). In his career he won five PGA Championships, four British Opens and two U.S. Opens ... and was 7-1-1 in Ryder Cup play.
