Harvie Ward

Edward Harvie Ward, Jr. (December 8, 1925 – September 4, 2004) was an American amateur golfer. He is best known for winning both the U.S. Amateur (twice) and the British Amateur.

Ward was born in Tarboro, North Carolina. He attended the University of North Carolina where he won the NCAA Division I individual title in 1949.

Ward's win in the British Amateur came in 1952 (he finished runner-up in 1953) and his consecutive U.S. Amateur wins came in 1955 and 1956. He also won several other amateur events including the Canadian Amateur, making him one of two golfers to win the U.S., British, and Canadian Amateurs (the other is Dick Chapman). He finished runner-up in the 1952 Western Amateur. He also won the North Carolina Open competing against the professionals.

Ward played on three winning Walker Cup teams (1953, 1955, 1959), winning all six of his matches.

In 1957, Ward lost his amateur status for accepting expenses from sponsors for golf tournaments. The ruling is reversed in 1958.

Ward played in 19 professional majors. In 11 Masters Tournament appearances, he finished in the top 10 twice (4th in 1957 and tied for 8th in 1955), in the top 25 five times, and only missed two cuts. In the U.S. Open, he made the cut in five of eight appearances, including a tie for 7th in 1955.

Ward was inducted into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame in 1965, [ [http://www.ncshof.org/inductees_detail.php?i_recid=129 North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame profile] ] the Carolinas Golf Reporters Association - Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame in 1981, [ [http://www.thecgra.com/halloffame.html Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame members list] ] and the Carolinas PGA Hall of Fame in 1996.
