|First Presented in 1919, this Silver Trophy donated by the Dayton Daily News and Sunday News was presented to Vin Hilton for his win in the first recorded Dayton Area Amateur Championship. Mr. Hilton then went on to win the 1920 & 1921 championship. We assume retiring the first trophy. In 1922, Howard Jordan won the championship and his name was engraved onto a new trophy that was also donated by the Dayton Daily News. The second trophy was then award to Vin Hilton for his fourth win and Jack Parrott in 1924 before both trophies where lost for decades! |
During a renovation at Dayton Country Club both trophies where found tarnished and dented. Over the last couple of years they have been straightened and polished and a base added with all the amateur champions through the years and presented to future winners.
