Willie Goggin Brief Biography

Willie Goggin (born 1906) was an American professional golfer. His best finish in a major championship was runner-up at the 1933 PGA Championship, won by Gene Sarazen.

In 1959, Goggin won the PGA Seniors' Championship, at Dunedin, Florida, with a score of 284, a shot ahead of the field. In June of that year faced British PGA Seniors Championship winner Arthur Lees in a match for what was billed as "the world professional senior golf title". To boost attendance, the final 18 holes of the match were scheduled to be played at night. In what the Associated Press called "the first twilight championship match on record," Goggin won the match 5&3. In December that year he also won the National Senior Open at Eldorado Country Club in a 3-way playoff, retaining the title he had won in 1958.
