Beaumont Open Invitational

The Beaumont Open Invitational was a golf tournament on the PGA Tour that played for two years in the early 1960s at the Terrell Park Municipal Golf Course in Beaumont, Texas, an 18-hole, par-72, 6,656 yard city-owned course.[1][2][3]

The 1961 event was won by 26 year-old Joe Campbell by one stroke over Beaumont native Bert Weaver, and was the first PGA Tour win of his career.[1][4] The 1962 event was won by 27 year-old Dave Ragan by three strokes over Dow Finsterwald, Don Massengale, and third round leader Lionel Hebert.[2][3]

The winners share was $2,800 out of a total purse of $20,000 in both years.[3][4]
