  • William Park Senior, detto Willie (Wallyford, 30 giugno 1833 – 25 luglio 1903) è stato un golfista scozzese, celebre per essere stato uno dei pionieri del golf professionistico e il vincitore della prima edizione del British Open, svoltasi nel 1860.Come molti altri tra i primi golfisti professionisti iniziò la carriera come caddie. In seguito si dedicò alla produzione di attrezzature per giocare a golf.Disputò varie sfide uno conto uno, che all'epoca erano la forma di competizione pubblica più popolare, opposto ai più forti giocatori come Tom Morris, Sr., Willie Dunn e Allan Robertson.Oltre alla prima edizione in assoluto, vinse il British Open in altre tre occasioni, nel 1863, 1866 e 1875.Anche il fratello Mungo e il figlio Willie, Jr. riuscirono a loro volta ad imporsi nel torneo.
  • William "Willie" Park, Sr. (30 June 1833 – 25 July 1903) was one of the pioneers of professional golf.Park was born in Musselburgh, Scotland. Like some of the other early professional golfers, Park started out as a caddie. He later ran a golf equipment manufacturing business. On the course, he made his money from "Challenge matches" against rivals such as Old Tom Morris, Willie Dunn and Allan Robertson, which were the most popular form of spectator golf in his era.Park, a tall, strong man, was a very long hitter and an excellent putter, but sometimes got into trouble through overly aggressive play. He had surpassed the older Willie Dunn by age 20, and travelled to St Andrews Links to play and learn that course. He issued a public challenge in 1853 to Robertson, generally recognised as the best player, which was, however, not taken up. Custom of the time allowed the best player to refuse a challenge of this sort without damage to his reputation. Park further fuelled controversy through his aggressive self-promotion, but this did lead to increased interest in golf rivalries, more press coverage, and more matches and tournaments being set up, developing the professional game and increasing the incomes of players such as Park, Morris, and Robertson.Park is primarily best-remembered as the winner of four Open Championships, including the inaugural event in 1860, when the field was just eight strong. His other victories came in 1863, 1866 and 1875. Park was the co-holder of the record for most wins in the tournament until James Braid picked up his fifth win in 1910.Park's brother, Mungo, and his son Willie, Jr. both also won the Open Championship.
