I think Paul Kirk won the ARO in 1991. At least that was what I have read on the other forum...

1984 GC American Royal Open
1991 GC American Royal Invitational
1994 GC Farmland American Royal Invitational, not really sure what the Farmland distinction means.

You have 2000 Open listed as Grillas. Grillas won in 2003. 2000 Open was Pig Newton.

Edit: Rib Stars won 1982.

Weren't there "professional" and "amateur" divisions in the early days?
I think Rib Star's win was in the pro division, which I believe was made up of professional chefs and the like.

Got me. I was just a wee lad. Richard was telling the story Friday night.

Head Country (Paul) says they've won the Invitational twice, listed 1994 as one invitational win.

Would be good to add the Jack Winners too

Maybe even Houston and MIM

Then we can really know who IS and is not a world champion :D
