FORE! Tee time for Golden Tigers

Although ample evidence exists that some form of the sport existed in China as early as the 10th century, it was not until 1878 that the first record golf tournament occurred: at Wimbledon, England, between Cambridge and the victorious Oxford.

Something to Cheer About: No. 2 in Year 1
