The top amateur golfer in state history, Updegraff once had scorecards on display showing his finest rounds at TCC — 61, 62, 63, 64 and so on. In fact, at 95, Updegraff recently shot 91 at his home course. “Ed had the ability that once he got to 2-under, he could take it to 5- or 6-under,” said Fred Hickle, a frequent player partner at TCC and long-time USGA official.
