Bob Clark

A friendly, happy-go-lucky weekend golfer at Keller Golf Club who never took the game too seriously and was content to play with anyone. Clark, a dapper dresser, played high school golf in Cedar Rapids, Iowa before he came to Saint Paul, Minnesota in the late 1920's.

Clark won the 1940 USGA Public Links Championship at Rackham Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan in record setting fashion, 8 and 6 over Mike Dietz. Clark then went on to win three consecutive Minnesota Public Links Championships in 1941, 1942 and 1943.

In the next years Clark eased out of tournament golf and spent more time bowling, a sport in which he was considered one of Saint Paul's best.
