James Barnes
Birth: Apr. 8, 1886
Death: May 24, 1966

Professional Golfer. At 6-foot-4 inches, he was one of the tallest players of his era, and was one of the longest hitters, both of which led to his nickname of "Long Jim." He won the first two Professional Golf Association Championships ever played. The first was in 1916, but the second - because of World War I - wasn't played until 1919. In 1921, Barnes added a United States Open crown, and in 1925 the British Open, making him the first player to win all three of those championships. He was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1989. (bio by: Gregory Speciale)
