Not only did Bishop dominate the club championship at Moon Brook Country Club by winning it 12 times, but away from his home course he won the Chautauqua County Amateur six times.
Long before his golf feats in Chautauqua County, the Marysville, Ohio, native showed his athletic abilities in the Buckeye State.
As a sophomore on the College of Wooster track team in 1935, Bishop competed in the broad Jump, high jump, 120-yard high hurdles and 220-yard low hurdles. In five dual meets, he won the high hurdles and high jump twice the broad jump once.
