Dang! I thought of putting Rulewich up, but not knowing much about him, I figured he was too obscure. I hear more about Hurdzan/Fry, so I put Fry up instead.

Had the opportunity to see a previous Golf World that highlighted the top 10 underrated architects of the 20th century. It seems little doubt to me that Ron Whitten has a major hand on the listing.

By chance, I spoke with Ron W just after my last post. As it turns out, he had nothing to do with this article.....or was having one helluva senior moment! ;D

Matts clue about the last living one starting outside golf design, suggests a pro, perhaps Tom Weiskoph?  Or even Deane Beamen?

Other than that, there would be land planners (Graves) insurance salesman (Dye) Engineers (Joe Finger, not dead in 1999 if that is the criteria)

Is there anything to you saying it's Whitten and Golf World?

Hmmm?

Whitten was not involved, per the horses mouth.

So, this leaves us with Golf World and who made the list?

How about that guy that designed DF?

Jim:

The one and the same.  He's designed a couple of solid courses here and there and truly atrocious course in Connecticut called Fox Hopyard. I think his Cumpin Fox in Western Massachusetts is overrated.

Don't encourage him. Next, Tony will come up with Robert Jack Ross, Philip MacKenzie Ross, Philip Michael Thomas, David Thomas, etc. We may lose control of this thread.  ::)

Some dead guy named H.I. Wilson, or was it H.I. Hiakawa?  He was a financial man who understudied the great C.B. MacDonald. 

Art Johnson, still alive.

Guys, guys, guys:

With all this expertise there is still one person missing.

I salute Jeff B in mentioning Joe Finger who is one of the top ten.

However, guys you are no where near getting the final person. I have already provided a clue and there will be no further ones coming.

The correct answer will be posted by Monday unless someone can nail him before them.

Good luck -- many of you certainly need it and then some ... ;D

Joe Finger and Roger Rulewich?

These guys had their heads jammed up their shagbags when they came up with this list.

P.S. Red Lawrence?

Tony:

Red is dead as a choice -- it's time to put on your thinking gap.

One other thing -- I have not said the list reflects my thoughts on the subject - clearly it does with Golf World when they printed the article.

The remaining gent is someone who gained his fame prior to getting involved with architecture -- in fact, his partner is still active in course designs -- many of which are overseas.
