1952 - Ted Kroll

Ted Kroll is shown as he walked from the 18th green after turning in a score of 273 to become the first winner of the Insurance City Open in 1952. Kroll was soaking wet at the time, having played through the tail-end of a hurricane on Labor Day - but he was still the winner.ARTHUR J. KIELY JR. / HARTFORD COURANT
