1965

James B. Masserio, 16, of Pittsburgh, became the first resident of the Northeast to win the Junior Amateur Championship. He was even par while defeating Lloyd Liebler, Portsmouth, Va., by 3 and 2 in the final match on the South Course of the Wilmington Country Club, Wilmington, Del.

Liebler, only 14 years of age, 5 feet 5 and 130 pounds, is the youngest player ever to reach the final round. The losing semi-finalists were Mike Spang, 15, Tualatin, Ore., and Gary Bennett, 16, Dillsburg, Pa. All the semi-finalists were young enough to be eligible to play again in 1966. The co-medalists, with 148, six over par, were Bob Barbrossa, St. Cloud, Minn., and Arthur Russell, Lake Jackson, Texas.
