The US Golf Association was founded on December 22, 1894, and in 1895 the US Amateur Championship made its debut. It is the oldest USGA championship.

The US Open and the US Women’s Amateur were not far behind.

The distinguished list of US Amateur winners includes Bobby Jones, Phil Mickelson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods.

In 1930 Jones completed his Grand Slam by winning the US Am at Merion. He has won the title five times. In 1996, Woods became the first to win three in a row.

The USGA has hosted nine championships at Cherry Hills. The most recent was the 2012 US Amateur. Perhaps the most memorable was the 1960 US Open, won by Arnold Palmer. Fresh off a Masters win, Palmer rallied after seven shots to claim the championship. Jack Nicklaus, a 20-year-old amateur, was second, two behind.
