September 20, 1913: Twenty-year old Francis Ouimet with lucky horseshoe in hand, got lifted up by fans after winning the 1913 US Open playoff. His caddie Eddie Lowry, just 10 years old, sat in front  with a towel draped over his neck. Ouimet, the first amateur ever to win the US Open, beat British professionals Harry Vardon by five shots and Ted Ray by six shots. He did this using just seven clubs in his bag. Ouimet, who went on to win several US Amateur Championships and played in the Walker Cup, never turned professional. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.
