Just 11 years after the Open, the USGA made a return trip to Minikahda for the U.S. Amateur Championship, where Robert (Bobby) Tyre Jones registered the third of his record, five titles. Jones, the medalist at 142, crushed Chick Evans in the final, 8 & 7. Jones opened with a hard-fought 2-up win over Maurice McCarthy, designer of the original course at Hershey Country Club. In the semifinals, Jones wiped out two-time Amateur winner and 1913 U.S. Open champion Francis Ouimet, 11 & 10, prior to his easy victory over Evans.
Next up was the Walker Cup in 1957. Led by captain Charlie Coe, the United States squad cruised to an 8-3 win over Great Britain and Ireland. The U.S. squad featured eight-time Walker Cupper William C. Campbell, six-time player William Hyndman III and Mason Rudolph, who would later win five times on the PGA Tour.
The U.S. Women's Amateur made a stop at The Minikahda Club in 1988, as current LPGA player Pearl Sinn knocked off Karen Noble in the finals, 6 & 5. Sinn's most notable win en route to the title was a 2-up quarterfinal victory over future nine-time LPGA Tour winner Kelly Robbins.
