In 1912, sculptor Lucy Richards came across old advertisements for the Pinehurst Resort. The photos from the 1800s depicted a boy carrying a golf bag and a putter in one hand. There she came up with her idea for what would later become one of the most iconic statues on the PGA Tour.

It only stands 2 feet tall, but the Putter Boy has a legacy much larger than Richards could have ever dreamt. It's said that her inspiration for Putter Boy's golf stance was that of Pinehurst resident and Chief Course Architect, Donald Ross. Even though the boy has moved to a variety of locations in the past 100 years, the current location is said to be close to where Ross originally planned for the statue to be located, according to old plans for the property.

This year Team TravisMathew will be sending Matt Jones, Brady Watt, and Chris Kirk out to the U.S. Open.
