About this Photograph: Johnny Goodman grew up as one of 10 children in a poverty-stricken portion of Omaha, Neb. To help out his family financially, he caddied at Omaha Field Club, where he learned how to play the game. In 1929, Goodman made national headlines by upsetting two-time defending champion Bob Jones in the first round of the U.S. Amateur in Pebble Beach. To get there, Goodman rode in cattle cars because he couldn't afford other modes of transportation. By 1933, Goodman was one of the country's best amateurs and at North Shore C.C. in Glencoe, Ill., he registered a one-stroke victory over Ralph Guldahl to win the U.S. Open. Goodman remains the last amateur to win this championship. Four years later, Goodman defeated Raymond Billows to win the 1937 U.S. Amateur at Alderwood C.C. in Portland, Ore.
