Eddie Lowery was just 10 years old when he was thrust upon the world stage as the caddie for Francis Ouimet at the 1913 U.S. Open.
A native of Newton, MA, Lowery was on the bag for Ouimet when Ouimet upended legends Harry Vardon and Ted Ray at The Country Club in nearby Brookline in 1913. Lowery relocated to San Francisco, CA, where he became a successful car dealer. He never lost his love for the game of golf, and helped grow the careers of U.S. Open champion Ken Venturi and two-time U.S. Amateur champion Harvey Ward. Lowery also served on the Executive Committee of the United States Golf Association. He died in 1984 at age 81.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Lowery earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
