Arnaud Massy was born July 6, 1877. He is best known for being the first non-briton to win the Open Championship, which he did in 1907. But Massy was not a one hit wonder.
Although he may have only won one major, he came close to winning many other times, and captured titles across Europe.
Massy won 13 professional tournaments, but played exhibition matches across Europe to help promote the sport.
In addition to winning the inaugural French Open, he also won the inaugural Belgian Open in 1910 and the inaugural Spanish Open in 1912.
The Open Championship was the only major that Massy had the chance to play in. In 21 appearances at the event, he finished in the top-10 on ten different occasions.
In 1911, he published a bestselling book entitled "Golf" that was translated into English from French and sold across Europe.
