Date Finished: September 17, 1904
Format: Ten players per team with 36 holes stroke play per player.
Of the six ten-man teams which had entered, only two showed up on September 17, the Western Golf Association and the Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. A third team was organized at the last minute from among the golfers present and it represented, very loosely, the USGA. The Western GA, led by current U.S. and Western Amateur champion, H. Chandler Egan, won fairly easily. (The previous week, Egan had defeated Walter Travis to win the U.S. Amateur. Travis, considered America's top amateur, entered the Olympic tournament but declined to compete, citing illness.)
