Hershey Open

The Hershey Open was a golf tournament on the PGA Tour from 1933 to 1941. It was played at the Hershey Country Club in Hershey, Pennsylvania on what is now called the West Course.[1] It was played as a 72-hole stroke play event every year except 1938. That year, it was played as an 126-hole round-robin match play tournament with eight two-man teams and called the Hershey Four-Ball. The format was identical to the one used by the Inverness Invitational Four-Ball. The event was not held in 1940 when the club hosted the PGA Championship.

Three times it was won by the resident golf pro—Henry Picard in 1936 and 1937 and Ben Hogan in his first year at Hershey in 1941.
