Biography

Stu Stickney was a member of the St. Louis Country Club and played for the Trans-Mississippi team which finished second in the Olympic team golf event. It was thought he could contend for the individual Olympic title, but Stickney ran afoul of George Lyon, the eventual champion, in the second round. He was a noted local amateur player, but attempts to compete nationally were not as successful, as he four times lost in the first round of the U.S. Amateur. In 1899 he lost to Charles McDonald, 14 & 12, which is stil the largest margin of defeat in the tournament's history. He did, however, win the 1912 Missouri Amateur and the 1913 Trans-Mississippi Amateur. He also competed in the 1920 British Amateur Championships.
