Robert "Bob" McKendrick started his love affair with golf ­caddying at Waverley Country Club, and worked his way into an assistant ­professional job with Ted Longworth at Waverley. In 1946, Bob was named head professional at Oswego Lake Country Club where he served with distinction for 40 years. Bob was a member of 19 Hudson Cup teams, more than any other professional, and served as captain in 1990. Bob served his fellow professionals in nearly every office of the Chapter and Section. Because he was a quiet, proud man, he could have been overlooked. The contribution Bob made to the game of golf and the PGA did not go unnoticed.
