Bing CrosbyHosted the first National Pro-Am Golf Championship
Although he made his name as a singer, vaudeville performer and silver screen luminary, Bing Crosby would probably prefer to be remembered as a two handicap who competed in both the British and U.S. Amateur championships, a five-time club champion at Lakeside Golf Club, and as one of only a few players to have made a hole-in-one on the 16th at Cypress Point. In 1937, Bing Crosby hosted the first National Pro-Am Golf Championship, the 'Crosby Clambake' as it was popularly known, at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Now the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, it has been a leading event in the world of professional golf.
