THere was also a famous golfer named Walter Ward during and past the time frame of 1939. Does anyone know if they are one in the same?
Are you thinking of Harvie Ward?
I could be mistaken; I do remember Harvie Ward the great amateur player. Might have to chalk this one up to being 66 years old.
Walter Ward! He smoked cigars with a double bend, they looked like the crank on an old model-T Ford.
As I understand it, those bent cigars were specially made for Ward. When the cigar maker died, Walter had to switch to regular stogies.
Fred Wolf on Championship Bowling always introduced him as “The Man With the Crooked Cigar.”
