ABOUT THE Western Pennsylvania Public Links

One of the WPGA’s newest championships is named for a top golfer of the 20’s and 30’s. Carl Kauffmann, the “Schenley Sphinx,” won the USGA Amateur Public Links, 1927-29, and was runner-up in 1926. He also won the 1925 West Penn Amateur, at which time the WPGA Executive Committee banned public golfers from the championship. Few men have ever won three straight USGA titles; only Willie Anderson and Tiger Woods (twice) have. The Public Links is a 36-hole stroke play competition. Naming the new event was easy with a player like Kaufmann in our history.
