Anderson won many local and state
junior championships in golf prior to entering Holy Cross, and
continued to excel as a Crusader. He teamed with Willie
Turnesa, the first golfer to be named to the Athletic Hall of Fame
at Holy Cross, and the Crusaders won the New England Championship
in 1937 and 1938.
After graduation, he competed in the Nationals in Seattle, Washington and in 1962 he teamed with Paul Harney, Hall of Famer, in the Bing Crosby tournament. Anderson was a winning golf coach for 10 years at Holy Cross and continued to win many championships in the New England area as a player himself.
