Player Bio

Ralph “Skinny” Porter was elected to the SDGA Hall of Fame in 1977, joining Phil Donohue, Ev. Comstock Sr., Marlene Bauer Hagge, Ed Livingston, and John Rachetto in the first class of golfers honored. The first dominant male golfer in South Dakota history, Ralph won four Match Play Championships in a six-year span from 1930 to 1935, at which time he left South Dakota for California at the age of 24. A state high school champion golfer for Sioux Falls Washington, Ralph won his final SDGA Match Play Championship in 1935 at Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls.
